A presentation by and discussion with Prof. Dr. Michaela Hoenicke-Moore, University of Iowa, USA

Prof. Hoenicke-Moore will address nationalism and US foreign policy, examining the profound transformation of American patriotism after 1941 to reveal the multifaceted domestic debates over the international role of the U.S. She investigates patriotism as an expression of national belonging and identity necessary for the formulation, legitimization and contestation of U.S. foreign policy and the changing nature over time of its role in the world.

Prof. Hoenicke-Moore is Associate Professor of History and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Iowa.  Her research concentrations are in International Relations, the United States and the World and the Political Culture of the U.S. and its Foreign Policy. She received her PhD from the University of North Carolina in 1998. Before joining the University of Iowa in 2008, she taught US history at the Kennedy Institute of the Free University in Berlin and York University in Toronto, as well as transatlantic history as a DAAD visiting professor at the University of North Carolina. Between 1999 and 2001 she was a senior fellow in US Foreign Policy at the German Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin.
