Global US and Anti-Americanism

The United States has made its presence felt abroad in many ways, with its economic and military power, through the interaction of its tourists, businesspeople, missionaries and soldiers with foreigners, or through the appeal of its music, film, fashions, and other cultural products. At the same time, the backlash against American cultural exports, U.S. foreign policy, or various symbolic meanings of America led one scholar to speak of the change from the "American Century" to the "Anti-American Century." This course critically examines both phenomena, Americanization and anti-Americanism, along with related concepts such as modernity, cultural imperialism, and globalization.
