Anti-Americanism: An Assessment from the American Perspective

Vortrag mit Prof. Dr. Sabine Hake, University of Texas at Austin, TX | Im Rahmen der Reihe "Transatlantic Tuesday"

Anti-Americanism remains one of the few acceptable forms of prejudice. Meanwhile, the process of what is still called Americanization continues unabated. But what does Americanization actually mean? What are the characteristics of Anti-Americanism? And what has made “America” both a wishful dream and a nightmare since the European discovery of the New World? One way of untangling this complex dynamic involves looking at the scholarship on Anti-Americanism and what it says about “America” and “Europe” as a part of a distinctly European discursive construct made up of imaginaries and projections and intended above all to make sense of Europe’s place in the world today. Prof. Dr. Sabine Hake is Texas Chair in the Department of German Studies at the University of Texas at Austin and a former FRIAS fellow.
