This course explores how America’s involvement in wars during the 20th and early 21st centuries has profoundly transformed society, politics, law, and culture on the American home front.
Topics include changes in such home-front issues as race, gender, and class relations; citizenship; rights; labor; welfare; government-economic relations; youth culture; family; and political conformity and dissent.
This course will be designed to fulfill the 4000-level requirements of the History Department meaning that it will guide students through an original research project that will utilize both primary and secondary sources and entail significant writing.
