About

Beat Studies is a vibrant field of academic and creative inquiry, growing scholarship recognizes this fact, but pressing questions remain. What is Beat? The transnational turn shows the Beat project exceeded just Kerouac-Ginsberg-Burroughs. While the Beat Generation seems predominantly an American phenomenon, might we speak of the emergence of a wider cross-cultural Beat-bohemian poetics? Some definitions of the “Beat Generation” appear too all encompassing; and one can question whether Beat scholars are choosing breadth at the expense of depth. What might more serious and sustained transatlantic and transnational discussions tell us about the present state of Beat Studies, and potential ways forward? Beat Studies is often overlooked in relation to other current fields of cultural analysis, in that case where do, or should, the Beats ‘fit’? The Beats were largely dismissive of academia, so should Beat Studies even exist as an established academic field, or should it exist outside the academy? Might scholars make more efforts to engage with non-institutional and creative/artistic approaches?
