FRENchEMIES. France and the United States: Junior Partner or Oldest Enemy?

Lecture Description

France is America’s oldest ally that some Americans love to hate. Disputes over the Iraq war led to an outpouring of anti-French actions, boycotts, and jokes familiar to historians of the Franco-American relationship. This lecture explores the sources of cultural and political tension between France and the United States, and how these differences have played into serious diplomatic conflicts since the Vietnam War.
