Our purpose is to foster Romanian Studies on the American continent, particularly in the United States and Canada. By advancing the scholarship and the intellectual exchanges between East-Central Europe and the West we hope to (re)present the complexities of both through their emerging artistic products.

In the age of blogs and globalization, we are interested in mapping the manifestations of the newest, culturally exciting phenomena that might bring Romanian and the North-American cultures closer. RSAA hopes to be in the vanguard of current critical studies and invites all those interested to join us in this cultural endeavor.
