Reading for Tuesday 9/27 and Thursday 9/29

For Tuesday, please also read this article on depression-era impersonations.We will finish watching My Man Godfrey and discuss it in the context of the article:

Laura Browder, “Passing as Poor: Class Imposture in Depression America”

For Thursday, we will move on to FDR’s attempts to unite the nation and devise and implement New Deal programs. For that day, you’ll read two secondary articles:

Jason Loviglio, “The Fireside Chats and the New Deal”

Michelle Hilmes, “Who we are, Who we are not: the Emergence of National Narratives”

Have a nice weekend.
