Important American Essays of the Twentieth Century
Saturdays, 10 am - Noon
March 2 - April 13

The United States rose from a minor power to the world's only superpower in the twentieth century. We will explore personal and political dimensions of "the American century" as described by some of the nation's best writers: James Baldwin, Joan Didion, Annie Dillard, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Walker, Tom Wolfe, and many more. For the first session, please read "Of the Coming of John," "A Law of Acceleration," and "The Devil Baby at Hull-House" in The Best American Essays of the Century, edited by Joyce Carol Oates. Seven sessions, $180.

Theo Anderson holds a Ph.D. in modern U.S. history from Yale University. He writes for the Chicago-based magazine In These Times and is working on a book about the origins and influence of philosophical pragmatism in modern America.
