Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

American historians dealing with the history of the United States are rethinking now for a long time the old concepts of a self-sufficient Nation-State and of an "American exceptionalism". Many historians reject these approaches as inadequate, and to "think beyond the borders" is now more than ever before seen as both challenging and rewarding. However, an emphasis on America's global interconnectedness is much older than we sometimes assume following the contemporary debates.
