Through literature, film, diplomatic relations and academic
exchanges, this volume examines key historical points in
Austrian-American relations of the past century, pondering
the roots of how and why „austrianness“ was adapted to
American culture, and how America’s cultural lens focused on
the two countries‘ exchanges. From Freud’s early reception,
to FDR’s policy toward Austrian refugees in the Pacific, and
from film adaptations to film-writing, literature and
Freudianism during the McCarthy era, it reviews encounters
between Austria and the United States, between Austrians and
Americans, between each’s images of the other, and the lives
of those caught in between.
