The lecture will introduce the worldwide phenomenon of Americanisation as it manifested itself in Europe throughout the 20th century. We will consider the way Americanisation is represented in different aspects of reality. We look at the complex relationship between American popular culture and its assimilation in some European countries but we will also investigate the ways that Americanisation intersects with issue of economics and politics.

Americanisation is the twin brother of Anti-Americanism and as we know too much of one perpetuates the other. Therefore different faces of European Anti-Americanism become a parallel object of out interest.
