Dept. of History spring lecture series: "What They Think of Us: The United States in the Eyes of the World

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, even as
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.
