Journal #6

Journal #6 is due in class on Monday, July 31st.

The last section of the course focuses both on the intersection of the personal and the political, and, particularly with respect to the authors we read this week, on the formation of American identity. For Monday, consider how the personal and political intersect around American identity in the work of one or more of the following authors: Herman Melville, Benjamin Franklin, J. Hector St. John De Crevecoeur, and Thomas Paine.
