The Capitol Project is an infinitely extensible exploration of the National Capitol as the cathedral of our national faith. This semester, graduate students in ENAM 803: Seminar in American Studies will be designing and building the gross architecture of the project, setting up this home page, improving and extending projects left behind by last semester's students, building their own extensions and sub-assemblies. By June 1, 1996 we hope to have something worth exploring. So far, this is what we have.

Gateways 95:Modules tracing the origins and historical transformation of iconic figures found in The Rotunda:

Satellites: A group of projects in which students describe a site, a person, a building, or event that stands in symbolic relation to the Capitol -- extending, qualifying, or contesting its status as representative of our official national culture.
