This special issue contributes to the ongoing discourse on the forging of the ‘American Century’ bringing together American and European scholars to revisit the time between the entrance of the US into WWII and the era of the European Reconstruction. The essays brought together here conjointly explore the multivalent agents and forces involved in forging of the American Century. They bring into play national and transnational trajectories that inform politics, media, and popular culture. Rather than adhering to a single theoretical approach, the nine articles gathered here offer a wide range of diverse intercultural perspectives and are informed by a wide array of theoretical and methodological approaches.
