CALL FOR ARTICLES

Defining Americanization

The February 2007 issue of Cercles (http://www.cercles.com) proposes to
examine the process and meaning of Americanization.

When Crèvecoeur asked in the eighteenth century "What is an American?"
he had a ready answer: Americans are "the scattered poor of Europe,"
"the persecuted," in short "a new race." But the mysterious process of
Americanization described by Crèvecoeur and later by Frederick Jackson
Turner in his famous but debated Frontier hypothesis is still to a
certain extent indefinable.
