Riots and Remembrance: America's Idols and the Origins of American Nationalism

Nichole George, University of Notre Dame

This project focuses on popular celebrations and the use of "celebrities" as symbols of the changing dynamics of American nationalism from settlement through the Civil War. George’s research focuses on three main idols, the Pope, Benedict Arnold, and Crispus Attucks, each representing a major transition in American national identity.
