The Duke History Department and co-sponsor Alumni Affairs Announce
Their Spring 2006 Speaker Series: What They Think of Us: The
United States in the Eyes of the World.
No country enjoys more power in the contemporary world than the
United States, and none elicits more passionate responses. In
recent years, American
policies and influence have met with increasing disdain abroad,
American products and ideals continue to gain an enthusiastic
reception. In "What They Think of Us," Duke and UNC professors
explore perceptions of the United States in four areas of the
world. Join us as we examine the often explosive response to the
United States in the contemporary world.
