The American Studies Center Aarhus Web Site (Department of English, University of Aarhus, Denmark).

The American Studies Center Aarhus (ASCA), based at the Department of English, University of Aarhus, Denmark, has established the ASCA Web site. The site, which is designed to help advance the study of the United States by facilitating research and teaching in the fields of American history, culture, literature, politics, media and language, provides three broad services.
Firstly, the Web site offers information about ASCA's membership and visiting faculty, its recent and forthcoming activities, and its library, audio-visual, and computing resources. The links to recent and forthcoming activities provide information about conferences and symposia, seminars and workshops, guest lectures, and graduate seminars.
Secondly, the site provides information about and links to a variety of Scandinavian American Studies resources. These include the Nordic Association for American Studies (NAAS), the scholarly journal American Studies in Scandinavia and the NAAS Forum discussion group. Furthermore, there are links to American Studies resources in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Finland, and Denmark as well as to US public and non-governmental agencies in Scandinavia.
Thirdly, the site provides Web links for a wide range of aspects of American Studies. These include links to art history, literature, diplomacy and foreign relations, media, gender, music, history, politics and society, journalism, and race and ethnicity homepages. The ASCA Web site also provides links to numerous search engines, scholarly discussion groups, American Studies gateways, newspapers and television sites, organizations and centers, electronic journals, and US government agencies, as well as access to materials relating to the use of new technology in the teaching of American Studies.
For students who are new to the World Wide Web, the ASCA Web site provides a brief interactive introduction to American Studies on the World Wide Web as well as a link to an index to the Internet from the University of California, Berkeley.
