When we think of Americans at war we think of the American Revolution; the Civil War, two World Wars, Vietnam, Iraq, and so on. How, in the act of memorializing them via monuments, songs, movies, and toys, do Americans made meaning of their wars? Does it matter that there are gaps in experience and interpretation between 1) officials who declare war; 2) military personnel who do the fighting; and 3) civilians who might be simultaneously victims, aggressors, and witnesses? How have wars of the past shaped our understanding of wars of the present? Finally, how might categories of personal identity (e.g., class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, religious belief,) shape the ways in which we understand our wars?

Course Requirements:

one paper; a midterm, and final exam.
