Welcome to the digital Humanities project, AAD Expanded. This page will facilitate the discussion on the development of this project, beginning in the spring of 2019.


This project aims to create a critical and cultural context around the composition and subsequent reaction to Norman Mailer’s novel An American Dream. It will begin with J. Michael Lennon’s 2004 Norman Mailer's Letters on An American Dream, 1963–1969. Additional interviews, reviews, essays, and miscellany will be added as they are collected, permissions cleared, and digitized.


Participation requires:

  1. An account on Project Mailer. This cannot be created by users, but must be done by the editor, Gerald R. Lucas. Send him an email requesting an account (please include the username you would like).
  2. Access to original documents. Original documents are stored on Google Drive. Please request access using your Google account. There will be numerous source documents we will be working with on this project.
