Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I invite you to take a look at my new blog,, exploring the narratives and assumptions shaping American political culture — past, present, and future. (Read more about the blog and link to recent posts, below.)

I’ve also created a companion site, “MythicAmerica: Essays,” offering an introduction to the main themes and issues in the study of American myths as I see them.

My main goal in creating these sites is to start a conversation about the myths and symbols that are so central to American political culture. I would be happy to have you join the conversation by posting comments on any blog post or essay and by “liking” MythicAmerica on Facebook.

Thanks so much for checking it out, and please forward this message to your own friends and colleagues.

Best wishes,

Ira Chernus
