 Knowledge and research is situated; particularly as European Scholars in the field of American Studies, we are often acutely aware of our own position in relation to our research. Our nationality, gender, race, religion, sexuality, or class informs the objects that we study, the methodologies we use, and our findings. Indeed, the awareness of positionality has been growing in recent American sociopolitical discourse, often accompanying the rise of identity politics and marginalised groups speaking back to the dominant culture.

In her article “Scales of Aggregation: Prenational, Subnational, Transnational,” Wai Chee Dimock asks some important questions “On what scale should we study the transnational? How does it mesh with the scale of the nation-state? How does it act upon the latter-and how is it in turn acted upon as a competing as well as a complementary regime of regulation?” Dimock recognizes that the transnational is in a dialogic relationship with the national. This view, however, seems to invite a vertical interpretation of this relationship.
