The, articles collected in this volume grew out of the conference on "Mapping American Space/ Espaces et Terres d'Amérique," hosted by the North American research group (G.E.N.A.), a member of the Anglophone Culture Center (C.A.S.), at the University of Toulouse on April 7-8, 2005. This volume brings together researchers specializing in literature, history, cultural studies and linguistics, for American space is open to all kinds of enquiries. The articles deal with social, historical, literary, and, more generally, cultural topics, examining not only the different ways of defining American space but also the conceptions Americans entertain in relation to space and territoriality. The questions of identity examined here are all the more absorbing as this nation founded on immigration constitutes a real laboratory for the study of these issues. Finally, this volume looks at the ways in which American artists have mapped American space imaginatively and figured its organization through cinematic and literary representations.
