Primary Instructor:

What is an American? How are Americans made? What do the concepts of liberty and equality have to do with being American? This course, taught by a historian, will treat these questions as they emerged and have been contested over the centuries. Examining history and literature, facts and fiction, we will explore stories told about liberty and equality against a social backdrop that features ethnicity, immigration, racism, slavery, religion, gender, status and class. We will view a few movies and read a wide variety of documents, memoirs, essays, and fiction.
