What is an American

  1. What is an American? How does literature create conceptions of the American experience and American identity? This two-part question should trigger discussion about issues such as, who belongs to America? When and how does one become an American? How has the search for identity among American writers changed over time? It can also encourage discussion about the ways in which immigration, colonization, conquest, youth, race, class, and gender affect national identity.
