Hector St. John de Crèvecoeur's *Letters from an American Farmer* and *Sketches of 18th-Century America* remain relevant because of their exploration of American contradictions, and the manner in which they negotiate the paradoxes of American identity. This panel will examine the tensions at the heart of Crèvecoeur's writings, and explore whether some sort of balance (or "equipoise," to use farmer James's term) is possible in our contradictory America. Please send 300-500 word abstracts to Tanya.Radford@dc.edu by Sept 30, 2010.
