War and Society
SINGLE SEMESTER COURSE
This elective examines examples of selected global conflicts of the 20th and 21st centuries and their effects on the societies they impact. We will attempt to re-examine assumptions and explore critical questions regarding the root causes of war and rely also on elements of sociology and psychology to deepen our investigation. In the end, the study of history comes down to a study and an attempted understanding of one of the most fascinating, inspiring, terrifying and complex elements-humankind.
