About & Contact

Confluence is the brand new academic review blog of the American & New England Studies program at Boston University.  Here you’ll find interviews with scholars and artists, reviews of upcoming and classic books on all topics that relate to American Studies, and short essays on whatever we find interesting.  Our goal is to create a space where our graduate students can write about whatever interests them in the hopes of stimulating some dialogue.  We hope you enjoy our work, and we encourage you to join the discussion.
