This thesis project aims to analyze the rise of the United States in the international system using speeches and documents in the corresponding period 1865-1913 and is part of a PhD thesis project entitles "The United States Foreign Policy from 1865 to 1913: discourse analysis of the North-American rise". It will seek to understand the role of the idea of exceptionalism, especially present in the so called "Manifest Destiny " and well-known landmarks as "Monroe Doctrine" and "Roosevelt Corollary" - they will serve as initial ponts for further comparisons and narrative construction. In addition, we will emphasize the constructions that relate the American identity in opposition to the "Other" to be delimited, as in adopting a Darwinian reading of social relations among nations and by American presidents, and the idea of a border that expands according to the need and the country's interests - inside a projetct of order and hemispheric stability which would correspond to a similar project internally. Abroad, we will focus especially on the idea that the end of the Civil War represented the victory of a hegemonic ideology through the country which allowed the United States to modify its institutions and rethink its role in the international system. We will seek to identify how the dichotomy North/South represented at first what other relations were carried by this identity nexus throughout the time and the emergence of other actors. (AU)
