Amerika Haus, May 3, 2016

Jacqueline Vansant, a professor of German at the University of Michigan-Dearborn and currently a Fulbright Visiting Professor of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Vienna, introduced the audience to an Austria as seen through the eyes of Hollywood. Professor Vansant compiled an exhausting list of Hollywood films that are either set entirely in Austria, or have important parts taking place in Austria. By showing film clips she explained how the image of Austria changed from the 1920s until today.
