This volume contains the fourteen papers that were given at the Third Franco-German Colloquium at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Leading French and German scholars in American Studies address issues of ethic cultures in the U.S. and Canada during the Twenties. The volume presents contributions by historians, anthropologists, and literary historians and has thus an interdisciplinary dimension. The groups and cultures dealt with are Jews, WASPs, Scandinavians, Africans and Italians in North America.
