American Nations - The Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Why do Americans have such a difficult time agreeing on basic issues like the meaning of freedom, the role of government and religion in public life, or what it means to be an American? Could it be that North America is actually made up of several very different cultures? Each one of these cultures has its own unique historical roots, derived from its initial European or American settler stream, whose values and mores were adopted and even enhanced by subsequent waves of new peoples. In this study group, we will traverse and explore all 11 regions of North America, using American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America (Penguin, 2012) by Colin Woodard as our primary source. We will also investigate recent migrations affecting various regions.
