This brief chapter in part 4 is one of the commentaries on the substantive parts 1 to 3 of the volume. Written by one of the pioneers in the “internationalizing” of American history, it reflects on the implications of the volume for the internationalizing project, on the raison d’etre for historiographical cosmopolitanism and on the theoretical and practical issues facing scholars of the United States working outside of the United States. It also wonders whether there is something about American history and professional institutions that makes the incorporation of “foreign” scholars difficult.

Keywords:   positionality, internationalizing, exceptionalism, framing
