Their America

This digital humanities project (2013 – 18) was devoted to iconic expressions (speeches, essays, political cartoons, fiction, news stories, etc.) about America by non-Americans. Our major objective was to create a global, synoptic site for Their America, an unpolemical, informative, and provocative resource not just for ‘American Studies’ scholars around the world, but for anyone interested in studying and debating the international reputation of the United States. We sought to explore a country no less strange and uncharted than America itself once was: their America, the nation and peoples of the United States as they exist in the hearts and minds of others.
