Description: The United States has always been a source of fascination -- both attraction and repulsion -- for the French. This course studies American culture and identity as revealed by transatlantic encounters with the French. We will study French intellectuals' observations (de Tocqueville, de Beauvoir) as well as images of America in French popular culture (comic strips, films).
