Constructing the Ideology of American Citizenship. with Bob Mayer

March 2, 2020 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

Free, White, and Christian: Constructing the Ideology of American Citizenship

with Bob Mayer

This class series looks at the way American thinkers, from the colonial period through the Civil War especially, shaped the concept of citizenship through the intersection of religion, slavery, and the construction of whiteness. We will explore how concepts like white and black, Christian and non-Christian, and free and slave shaped the ideology of early American thinkers and laid the foundation for today’s fractured and polarized society. An important part of the class will be in examining how Jews fit into the evolving definition of citizenship over time.

DATES: Mondays 5:45-6:45 p.m. Feb 17, 24, March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
