Course Description: This course explores the complex relations between Europe and the United States from the late eighteenth century to the present. It starts with 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 examines 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 and emerged as an international ally, an important trading partner, and an irresistible, yet controversial, reference culture for European society. The course also explores the rising debate about consequences of geopolitical changes in a post-American Europe. Students learn academic concepts such as transnational history, globalization, Americanization, anti-Americanism, and cultural exchange. This course offers an essential framework for the understanding of the exchange of peoples, goods, economic models, ideas, and cultural patterns that defined the Atlantic World.
