Inhoud
This course explores the complex relations between Europe and the United States from the late eighteenth century to the present. Starting point is the founding of the American Republic during the Atlantic Revolutions of the late eighteenth century. While the “first new nation” tried to distance itself from Europe during the nineteenth century cultural connections remained and new ties were forged by immigration and trade as the United States emerged as the agricultural and industrial power house of the world. This course will examine how in becoming a global power during what has been dubbed the “American Century” the United States determined the fate of Europe during the First and Second World Wars and the Cold War, emerged as an international ally, an important trading partner, and an irresistible, yet controversial, reference culture for European society. The course will also explore how recent years have, however, seen a debate about consequences of geopolitical changes in a Post-American Europe. Students will learn to use academic concepts such as transnational history, globalization, Americanization, anti-Americanism, and cultural exchange. This course offers an essential framework for our understanding of the exchange of peoples, goods, economic models, ideas and cultural patterns that defined the Atlantic World.
