American Identities Links, Spring 2006

I will be updating this list of links over the rest of the semester. My aim is to be selective and choose the most useful sites for context and research. This list represents only the tip of the iceberg; to get a sense of the range of pages out there on the various authors and topics related to this course, I recommend that you search on your own by going to any web search engine (I think teoma and google are the best for looking up specific things; yahoo!, excite, infoseek, lycos, and profusion.com are good if you want a somewhat organized overview of what's out there, but see the links below for other useful "gateway"/search tools). Please email me with suggestions for additions to this list at simon@fredonia.edu.
