This course will take a distinctly global history approach to the Cold War, from the birth of the twentieth century’s dominant competing international systems during World War I, to the Cold War’s twenty-first century legacies. Each week will consider political and cultural connections and comparisons across multiple regions of the globe, emphasizing developments — from political ideologies, to culture, technology and science — that transcend any particular nation-state. In considering the politics and culture of the Global Cold War, we will emphasize contestation and multiple perspectives, highlighting the agency and critiques of critics of Cold War frames as well as the views of the Cold War super-powers.

Lectures will contain significant visual and media components. Lectures will parallel and complement, but not repeat the readings. Successful participation in class discussion sections will depend on a thorough engagement with the reading and lecture/media components of the class. Each week we will explicitly consider the kinds of questions, methodologies, and scales employed by the scholars we are reading in their global approaches to history.
