In her 2019 book, The Heartland: An American History, University of Illinois Professor of History Kristin Hoganson discusses the myth of “the heartland” as it is used as a symbolic tool. After reading the introduction to her book, discuss the following for Post #2:

    • Based on your own understanding and what you have read so far, why is this “heartland” myth so powerful for Americans? What anxieties does it ease (as a concept)? Or, what does it reinforce (as a concept)?
    • What are some examples of the ways this heartland myth gets re-emphasized or re-circulated in our present time? Think in terms of texts that create “culture:” films, TV shows, politics, ads, memes, music, etc. With this in mind, what would you say is your own conception of “the heartland”?

Be sure to fully explain your connections. Also, it is useful to bring in at least one key quote from the text. Don’t forget to cite the page number(s).
