About aspeers

aspeers is the first and currently only graduate journal for american studies in Europe. Embedded into the American Studies Leipzig MA Program, its issues are available online and in print. In keeping with the university's open access policy, aspeers publishes all academic articles under a creative commons attribution license.

With the members of the reviewing editorial staff being MA students at Leipzig, aspeers is currently the only graduate-level peer-reviewed publication channel for students in European American Studies programs. The initial issue of aspeers allowed for any academic contribution exploring the diversity and productivity of the field. The following issues featured thematic sections on “Migration and Mobility,” “Crime in America,” “Nature and Technology, Revisited,” “American Food Cultures,” “American Memories,” and “American Anxieties,” respectively.
