This interdisciplinary issue on ‘The cartographic imagination: Art, literature and mapping in post-war America’ in the European Journal of American Culture starts from two intellectual premises: the first one consists in acknowledging the relevance of cartography and mapping as modes of aesthetic representation and critical thinking in the United States after 1945, and the second consists in asserting the fruitful insights that can be gained by discussing post-war American literature and art together from the point of view of their common interest in cartography. This issue thus presents an interdisciplinary dialogue between American art and literature thanks to the choice of a third term, ‘mapping’, which provides a clear thematic orientation and also a theoretical and critical framework to the various contributions.
