Harriet Beecher Stowe’s anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin is arguably the most influential novel ever written. It changed the course of U.S. history (For more on the influence of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, see the video, David Reynolds: Harriet Beecher Stowe: Uncle Tom’s Cabin.). In “Articulating Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” Jim O’Loughlin argues that Uncle Tom’s Cabin was so popular and influential because Stowe reflected “existing tropes and public concerns in a compelling narrative form” (O’Loughlin, 2000, p. 594). Moreover, Stowe created powerful images that took on a life of their own, evolving into racist stereotypes.

Summarize O’Loughlin’s argument in two to three pages (excluding title and reference pages). In what ways did Stowe reflect her culture, and in what ways did she influence it? In what ways did Uncle Tom’s Cabin positively influence American culture, and in what ways did it negatively influence American culture? Be sure to cite specific passages from the texts to support your interpretation.

Steps to Complete the Assignment:

  1. View David Reynolds’ video about how the novel influenced our culture. 
  2. Read the selections from Uncle Tom’s Cabin that your instructor assigned, if any.
  3. Reread the parts of your instructor’s guidance that discusses Uncle Tom’s Cabin, if any.
  4. Participate in your Week One Discussion, if it is about Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
  5. Read “Articulating Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” by Jim O’Loughlin. Pay special attention to the author’s claims about how the novel.
    1. Reflected American culture at the time it was written.
    2. Influenced subsequent American culture positively.
    3. Influenced subsequent American culture negatively.
  6. Identify the thesis of O’Loughlin’s article, and state it in your own words.
  7. Identify the key steps in the reasoning O’Loughlin uses to support his thesis, and explain O’Loughlin’s reasoning in your own words. Be sure that even someone who has not read the article for themselves could understand your summary.
  8. Cite page referenced examples from O’Loughlin’s article to prove that you are interpreting his argument accurately. You may also cite the primary text (Uncle Tom’s Cabin) as needed. 
  9. Use in-text and reference citations in APA style.
