Trend argues that the United States is an â€œunfinished project.â€  How does he mean this claim with respect to the United States having an aspirational culture? How does he understand it to include the potential for outsiders to belong to American culture?
Trend argues that culture helps frame boundaries for including or excluding certain subjectivities. With respect to at least two distinct groups, how does Trend suggest these groups struggled to change their status from â€œnot belongingâ€ to â€œbelongingâ€?
Trend wonders what might happen if the notion of â€œidentityâ€ was treated as nothing more than â€œfiction.â€ Discuss the ways in which at least one identity you claim has become important to your sense of belonging (or lack thereof) in some aspect of your life. In what ways is that identity a basis for you activism/engagement with the world. How is it more than a fiction?
Arguments about religion and morality lie at the heart of much conflict in contemporary society. Describe three issues profiled by Trend that have matters of faith at the core of the conflict.
