From the Gilded Age to the Jazz Age, Americans flocked to Europe. Stories that emerged from these journeys—from Henry James to F. Scott Fitzgerald—will allow us to explore American attitudes to the “Old World” and how Americans have defined themselves and their culture through observing and interacting with other societies. Four sessions.
