Is there such a thing as "the American Story" or are there many American stories? If so, what are they? How do they combine to create the American narrative binding us together as a nation and as a people? More fundamentally, in these fractious times why is how we answer these questions important? The five-part series begins with "We Tell Ourselves Stories", proceeds to "Freedom at Home and Abroad", "Freedom's Faultlines: Stories of Race and Gender", "Hamiltonian Economics and a Nation of Hustlers" and concludes with "The Immigrant's Tale.” This course is replete with images, videos, and music essential to America's many stories.
Fee includes both Senior Scholars Wednesdays courses: Crossing: A History of the Transatlantic Passage AND American Tapestry: The Stories We Still Tell Ourselves.
