Senior Scholars: More Beautiful, More Terrible: When The American "Adam" Leaves Home (Remote)

Tuesdays, March 16–April 20

When the character of the confident American, who believes himself at home everywhere, travels to the Old World, what he or she experiences reaches beyond the easy pleasures of museum and cafe. Over six weeks, we will explore the depiction of the American abroad in novels by Mark Twain, Henry James, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Graham Greene, and Joan Didion. In the hands of these writers, the ugly American becomes the naive, unsubtle, even imperiled American in dangerous and unexpected ways.
