August 6-12 @ Harvard University, CGIS South

In this seminar we consider the formation of the notion that has come to be known as American exceptionalism.  The writings of Alexis de Tocqueville and John Courtney Murray offer the starting points in our exploration of the continuities and changes of the charged term through American and global history.
