Impacts and Images: The Challenges and Limitations of U.S. Cultural Diplomacy in Postwar Austria and Germany

This special volume of Zeitgeschichte is one of the outcomes of “Impacts: Does Academic Exchange Matter?”, an international conference that took place in November 2010 in Vienna as part of the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Fulbright Program in Austria. The essays in this volume – chosen from among almost 30 presentations – focus predominantly on Austrian and German perspectives of U.S. cultural diplomacy in the immediate postwar era.
