The International Forum for U.S. Studies PRESENTS:
“‘ America’ in the World”: A Symposium on Discourses of Americanization and Anti-Americanism
MARCH 4-5, 2005
The University of Iowa
The International Forum for U.S. Studies invites the public to a two-day symposium on the University of Iowa campus. Scholars from the U.S. and abroad will present their research on the role of "America"--as idea, as political entity, and as cultural imaginary -- in the world.
This symposium brings together scholars from Germany, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Hungary and Japan, all of whom are specialists on the U.S. in a variety of fields ranging from literature to political science, to present research on the image of America in the world. Topics range from the production of cultural meaning across borders, to the perceived and actual influence of American ideologies across the globe. Whether the object of study is film, music, cultural translation, policy-making, or international security, experts explore the relationship between the weight of America as an actual and symbolic site and regions elsewhere.
The "'America' In the World" Symposium is organized and presented by The International Forum for U.S. Studies with funding from International Programs at the University of Iowa. All events are being held in the John Pappajohn Business Building, room S401. A complete schedule of events running from 9AM-5PM on Friday and Saturday March 4th and 5th is available at our website (web address provided below).
