Typically American

The lecture series “Typisch Amerikanisch” (“Typically American”) was regularly hosted by the HCA during the winter term. The series aimed at providing both the academic community and the general public in Heidelberg and the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region with multidisciplinary perspectives on issues dealing with American culture, politics, economy and society, past and present. Each annual series was organized around a different central theme. Scholars, professionals, and other experts from and abroad were invited as guest lecturers. Thereby each series offered lectures from various academic disciplines and other areas of expertise, exploring and illuminating the respective main topic from multiple angles.

The first series in 2002/03 introduced the audience to the activities of the newly established HCA. It featured ten lectures, one from each department contributing to the HCA’s founding initiative. Further series focused on “Power, Mission, and Morals - U.S. Foreign Policy” (2003/04), “Nation and Multiculturalism in the U.S” (2004/05), and “The U.S. and the Global Economy” (2005/06). In 2008/09 the topic was “America after the Bush Era”.
