As part of the LAS protocol, I am required to take a class called the “American Experience”. This class falls under one of the classes I am required to take for a University Requirement, and it counts as a writing intensive credit. We read two books in this class. The first on we read was a collection of documents and essays put together by Mae M. Ngai and Jon Gjerde. The second book was called “Postethnic America”, and it was written by David A. Hollinger.
