LLC: IMAGINING AMERICA We will compare descriptions of America’s landscape and promises by authors from diverse cultural groups, exploring the changing American dream, the emergence of a multicultural community, and how literature creates narratives of national identity. Such authors as Fitzgerald, Johnson, Whitman, Miller, Kingston, Mukherjee, Hansberry, Cisneros, and Marshall inform our evolving definition of what it means to be American in periods of national transformation, including the Jazz Age, Great Depression, and the Civil Rights era.
