Abstract/Description: Under the mentorship of Prof. Shonda Stevens, we are researching and studying the American Expatriate Literary Tradition; creating analytical lists of displaced and expatriated American novelists, artists, and poets, and the works they have accomplished and published. Major names recognizable by the general public are Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the "Lost Generation", but our goal is to widen the public's view of American expatriate culture, as well as to encompass many more authors and artists who have also done incredible work, utilizing the information we find during our research. Our final goal is a university-level textbook, which will outline the American Expatriate Literary tradition, offering a definition as well as a list of authors and their literary works and travels. The text will discuss various American expatriate authors and poets, the works they have written, and what their works have said about American culture and tradition. We are currently in stage-three of our research; we are beginning to delve deeper into the literary tradition, writing up personal definitions of the movement and conducting research on specific authors and time periods. Each of us has been assigned specific authors and time periods, and we are currently gathering information on these authors—the works they have written, what they have written about, where they were stationed while writing, and other appropriate information.
