Is there an “after” to the transnational turn in American studies? We assess the potential of various concepts (e.g., planet, climate, and globe) to advance the aims and transcend the limitations of the transnational turn. Participants offer speculative, “post-transnational” case studies and ask, Can we think beyond the transnational? Is the transnational the new normal of American studies?
