“America is the dream of so many things”

Images and experiences of German speaking au pairs in the United States

Christine Geserick

‘I always wanted to see America’ 1 When the term ‘America’ (German: “Amerika”) is used, the interviewees refer to the United States of America. Despite the geographical inadequateness, I will stick with the literal translation of their quotes. . This sentence is used often when future au pairs from Germany and Austria are asked why they participated in the United States’ au pair programme. Almost all of the 24 young people who took part in my qualitative longitudinal study, which started in 2006, stated the cultural experience to be their primary motivation to

Finding oneself abroad

Au pairs’ strategies of self-positioning in hosting societies

Caterina Rohde-Abuba and Olga Tkach

au pairs in the USA in a longitudinal study of 24 interview partners, whom Geserick had met three times: first shortly before their departure; secondly, in the United States, approximately 8 to 12 weeks after their arrival; and thirdly when they had left the United States after 12 months. The USA has long been an attractive destination for travellers, short-term and long-term migrants, such as au pairs. Employing Moscovici’s concept of the figurative kernel, Geserick argues that the attractiveness of the USA manifests itself in the images of the ‘grandness’ as an

On the one hand, a regime change is often followed by the demolition of the previous regime’s political symbols ( Harrison 1995 ; Verdery 1999 ; Foote, Tóth & Árvay 2000 ). Secondly, to become a lieux de mémoire in Nora’s (1989) term a monument requires live, regularly performed spatial practices. In other words, a statue remains a piece of art until it is embedded into the social practices of society

While, in public, the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission was portrayed as a bipartisan entity (The Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission’s Final Report to the United States Congress and the American People [hereafter, Final Report ] n.d., 3; Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act 2009, 1767–1768), some of its key members and its European celebrations
