This course takes as its subject the American experience. As recorded in our classic cultural artifacts. Broadly conceived, it examines a variety of issues in American intellectual and cultural history. Its purpose is largely two-fold. First, it represents an extensive study of the major topics relating to the culture, especially the intellectual culture, of the United States with a particular emphasis on the earlier periods. Second, it introduces potential research topics for further, more intensive study of American history.
