This program will be a summer-long exploration of the question, “What does 'the American Dream' mean today?” Combining on-campus activities with travel throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond, students will produce a multimedia portrait of this nation in 2019. First session will be devoted to reading contemporary American travel literature, writing workshops, and an introduction to oral history and interviewing. In second session, students will spend three weeks on the road (individually) interviewing and writing, and sharing their experiences (via the Internet) with faculty and classmates. In late August, students will reconvene on campus and formally share their “American dreamscapes.”
