This course examines crucial events in American history, from the Puritans to the present, through the lens of Hollywood film and other media. We will consider how these mostly visual representations have influenced our understanding of key matters in the present such as the Constitution, presidential politics, Protestant religion, racial tensions, and war-making. Each lecture will address the issues that are raised in the reading and viewing material for the week.  I welcome questions and discussion even in a large class. I will give you my best, and I will expect the same from each of you.
