How does a particular city shape, hinder, or enable the life (career, agenda, domestication, nationalism) of a character? As urban populations grew in the Early Republic, cities both shaped and were indebted to public figures who came either to rise to prominence on account of a quality that flourishes in such an environment or a manipulation of the characteristics of the city to accomplish one's ends. Consistent with the symposium's theme of "The City and American Literature," successful proposals will explore the relationship between individual men and women and their urban environments in regard to habits, qualities, identity, or behavior.
