Tuesday afternoons 2-4pm for five weeks 9th November - 7th December 2021.

When and on which ideological basis did the American Empire rise? Who are its main adversaries and allies? The American Empire draws its ideological foundations from a series of doctrines and myths, such as "the city on the hill", "American exceptionalism", "redemptive violence" and "manifest destiny". The United States perceives itself not only as different from all other countries but also as a nation appointed to spread its model of freedom and democracy throughout the world. This course aims to focus attention on the ideological roots of the American Empire and on the events that led the country to be the world power it is today.
