Term: FA 2010
Subject: History (HISTORY)
Department: LSA History
Course Note:
A basic introduction to historical thinking and method through small-course seminar experience. Topics vary from term to term; however, no matter what the topic, students can expect to spend a great deal of time learning to think critically about historical questions and to write well. As such, the First-Year seminar should serve as an introduction to upper-level course work in history and related fields of study.

This course examines the role of the United States in Southeast Asia from its earliest interaction in the late 19th century until the present. American involvement in Southeast Asia touches on a number of themes common in the United States involvement with other parts of the world, including imperialism and colonialism, World War II, the Cold War (in particular the Vietnam War, for the US the bloodiest conflict since World War II), and what role the United States should play in the post-Cold War era.

No prior knowledge of Southeast Asian history is assumed.
