Product Description
This lesson focuses on the remarkably modern and relevant essay "Trans-National America" by Randolph Bourne, and how his ideas about 'hyphenated' Americans, and the process of assimilation, have shaped our view of the 'American melting pot.' Bourne criticizes those who expect all newer arrivals to become Anglo-Saxon, and those who would have new immigrants lose touch entirely with their native cultures. He also criticizes a shallow understanding of what American culture actually is; all too many people think of 'pop culture' as American culture, with its emphasis on materialism and fads.
