America: What Does That Mean?

What does "America" mean? What is it to be an "American"?

These questions and more I will have some better idea of come the next few days. No posting this weekend. Tonight I am on my way to a conference on the above themes, with the keynote address by none other than Victor Davis Hanson himself. Should be stimulating.

Some of the topics to be covered throughout the weekend:

Culture and Creed in the Formation of Americans
Immigration and America
E Pluribus Unum
What Should It Mean To Be An American Citizen?

Since I have to write a reflection on the talks and the overall conference, I will post some of those thoughts here sometime in the near future.
