abstract = "This essay offers a review of American and Atlantic approaches to the history of New Orleans. It argues that most American historical writing about New Orleans employs a national perspective that views the city as ‘‘exceptional.’’ The essay highlights the limits of a USA-centered historiography and suggests that an Atlantic-oriented approach might offer new insights. It considers a variety of works, old and new, that address themes related to the Atlantic World, noting the richness of research about the colonial city and the paucity of work about its nineteenth- and twentieth-century successor. The essay suggests possible directions for future research in the areas of ethnicity, immigration, and cultural transfer, while also identifying some limitations to the Atlantic approach.",
