In "Homefronts during War," we examine not the battles and factors that determined the military outcomes, but the domestic struggles and changes that have defined our national experience of war. How have Americans responded at home to war and threats of war throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first? What internal divisions and shared identities has war inspired or revealed? How has the experience or threat of war shaped American values, politics, and experience? Scheduled readings will focus on five periods: WWI, WWII, Cold War, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, with some attention to the current post 9/11 war and ongoing events. Issues covered include meanings of patriotism, critiques of democracy, pacifist movements and challenges to American military activities; perceptions of soldiers; images of the enemy and their impact on Americans identified with national enemies; and the role of media in influencing public perception of war.
