BECOME A MEMBER of Americana: The Institute for the Study of American Popular Culture (1900-present) by making a donation to the Endowment Fund.

Americans have long held as true that the study of American history is not only a worthy endeavor it is a critical one. Only after knowing and understanding our past can we insure positive change for the future.

We, at Americana: The Institute for the Study of American Popular Culture, believe that there exists no better record of the history of America and Americans than in our popular culture. There we will find the hopes, needs, dreams, and desires of the people.

Through the careful analysis of our twentieth and twenty-first century American popular culture, we can more clearly understand where we have been and who we have been and thus consciously consider where we want to go, who we want to be, how we want to live, and what public policies we want to endorse as twenty-first century Americans. This process will also help us formulate our identities and find our political, sociological, and spiritual direction.

We hope that you will support us in our study of the popular culture of our American past by donating to our Endowment Fund, managed by our Board of Directors. Your donations will build invested principal, and the interest will be used to fund such activities as scholarly research, office operating costs, a website, web design, web hosting, email services, Press Americana, Magazine Americana, and Americana: The Journal of American Popular Culture, 1900 to present.

In addition to our scholarly pursuits, we believe that creative writers are the creators of our future popular culture; thus we support exceptional artists by publishing their work in Review Americana: A Creative Writing Journal and Press Americana. By donating to the Endowment Fund, you will also be supporting outstanding creative writers.
