ABSTRACT
<p>Five articles resulting from the Appropriating America, Making Europe Conference (held in Amsterdam, 15&#x2013;17 January 2009) are introduced in the light of the existing literature in American studies and the contrasting approaches of the history of postwar reconstruction and Cold War history. All five articles convey the tension between hegemonic and consensus interpretation. More than that, the set of five shows a pathway beyond, toward a transnational history of computing.</p>
INDEX TERMS
