What Is an American? (2nd semester)

This learning community will examine the formation and development of what it has meant to be “American” from Reconstruction to the present. Students will explore questions such as what are the defining characteristics of American culture and society. Who can be an American? What does it take to go from being an immigrant and foreigner to becoming “red-white-and-blue?” Why do some groups have an easier time of it? How can a country composed of so many different races, religions, and peoples ever share one identity? Is it possible to be “American” in an age of “multiculturalism” and “diversity”? Using government documents, personal letters and diaries, poetry, fiction, political cartoons, and even modern Hollywood cinema, we will read and write about how Americans have shaped, defined, and defended their identities. This LC is open to all students who have successfully completed any section of ENG 111. Students interested in this learning community must register for both course sections listed.
