    “The thing I appreciate and love about American studies is it's not so narrow-minded or tunnel-visioned”. “The mere process of reading and researching has helped answer a lot of questions I have in my own formation, of what I want to do with my life, so it's much more of a personal project in that way.”

American Studies at Notre Dame

If our lives in education have any significance, it will be in our reading the signs of the times and in educating the young of our times in the visions and values that will civilize and make for reasonable human progress and lasting peace on earth.
