Summary/Abstract: American Literary Studies in Ukraine: Academic Discipline or a Mover towards Social Changes? The paper presents an overview of the past and the present of American literary studies in Ukraine since the nation’s independence in 1990. We argue that American diverse experiences in finding the workable balance between an individual and the state as recorded in literature and shaped by it have been of special significance for Ukraine as potential models in its quest for new national identity. The paper discusses institutional forms of teaching and studying American Literature, recent publications in the field, as well as current theoretical trends in Ukrainian scholars’ approaches to the works authored by US writers.
