This course will examine the politics and culture of the Cold War within the United States as well as U.S. foreign policy abroad. We will consider popular culture (such as cartoons, films, novels), in order to examine gender, race, and sexuality, material culture, and the machinations of governments, spies and covert operations. We will also focus on the government-sponsored cultural programs that sent everything from jazz bands to modern art traveling throughout the globe. We will look at the private initiatives of American citizens in shaping U.S. relations with other nations, such as missionaries and international adoption agencies. In all cases, we will attempt to treat politics and culture with equal seriousness and rigor. In addition to two in-class midterms and a take home final, all students will participate in a group project, where small groups will examine and analysis and examine a product of Cold War culture.
