Diplomacy, War, Social Change

From One World War to Another: Diplomacy, War, and Social Change, 1918-1948
Traumatic events create great changes. No event in the 20th century was more traumatic than World War II. In this course we will consider the diplomacy that led to the war, determined the conduct of the war, and shaped post-war politics. We will examine what it was like to be engaged in the war on the battlefield and on the home front. Then we will consider the war's effects on future wars, on international law, and on society, including gender and racial relations. We will employ a variety of sources: readings in history and politics, memoirs, poetry, feature films, and documentary videos. This course counts as a Political Science elective.
