American Myths

American_progressThe American Myths Symposia is a two-year series of public discussions take place at Arch Street United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, PA. These symposia bring together historians, sociologists, activists, and citizens to engage in a critical discussion of the myths that have had enduring appeal in U.S. history. Although the term myth is often used interchangeably with “lie,” in another sense, myths are stories that help societies to express their values, fears, and aspirations.

Location: the forums will be held at the Arch Street United Methodist Church at 55 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is easily accessible by mass transit.
