The Transnational Heroization of Donald Trump - Lecture by Prof. Michael Butter

Date: 
13. Nov 17:00 - 19:00

American Studies Leipzig and the Collaborative Research Center on “Invectivity” cordially invite you to a lecture by Prof. Michael Butter on the heroization of US President Donald Trump in both the United States and Europe. In his talk, Prof. Butter will analyze texts, memes, and online videos to examine how the heroic narratives that are circulated in popular culture on both sides of the Atlantic have increasingly become intertwined with politics and are used to make sense of it. Although Trump means different things to different admirers (or fans), they share an international language of Western heroism, and their heroizations of Trump depend on, and are enabled by, a globally circulating popular culture that provides both the templates and tropes for the heroic narratives they create.

The event takes place on Tuesday, November 13, 5pm at Villa Tillmanns (Wächterstr. 30).

This talk is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there!
