Americanist vs Americanized

“I want you to be an Americanist, and not Americanized.”

I remember this statement of hope was said by one former lecturer of mine when I attended the general stadium in my first semester of American Studies Graduate Program, Gadjah Mada University Yogyakarta Indonesia.

Right now, instead of being an Americanist, I become Americanized, I suppose.  Oh, she must be very unhappy to know this. Not really Americanized perhaps, but westernized is more appropriate.

If there are the west and the east in this world, Internet has shrunk this world, hasn’t it?
