Abstract and Keywords

This article investigates the profound redundancy, terminological and historical, of transnational American studies. It argues that transnational American studies is a logically incoherent formulation whose plausibility arises from its perpetuation of a hemispheric cultural–political project of a very long nineteenth century which has distinguished America as more than yet another nation but rather a teeming nation of nations. The article discusses the works of Thomas Paine, Simón Bolívar, and José Vasconcelos.

Keywords: transnational American studies, cultural–political project, America, Thomas Paine, Simón Bolívar, José Vasconcelos
