    The September 18, 2014 vote on Scottish independence (and recent news that Welsh activists are anxiously awaiting the outcome) is a reminder that the “United Kingdom” is a contingent “imagined community” and that “British Studies” encompasses a wide range of diverse localities. Regionalism has been a longstanding area of focus within American Studies, and in both American and British Studies the emergence of Caribbean Studies has been an important expansion and corrective. What are the implications of regionalisms for the future of transatlantic studies? How might we responsibly acknowledge the importance of regional formations while also tracking the circulations of texts, people, and ideas in multiple directions across the Atlantic?
