“Spatial immensity beggars designation. Immensity itself fails, vastness and other common terms
fail... Five hundred years into the settlement of…America by Europeans and Africans,
intellectuals, and designers especially, lack words for bigger than big. An unwholesome, stubborn
refusal to confront the immensities of the continent, indeed the immensity of the continent
itself...” –John R. Stilgoe, “Wuthering Immensity”

The "East Coast/West Coast" rivalry, distinction, feud, or romance is a recurrent theme in American music and popular culture, most famously in hip hop, but also in rock, jazz, and other genres. How does this dynamic play out in other forms of popular culture, politics, and literature? This panel will enlarge on the East Coast/West Coast theme in relation to this year's conference topic, "Home/Not Home: Centering American Studies Where We Are." We will enlarge on the motif through interdisciplinary conversation, exploring it in relation to multiple genres and modes in U.S.
