The Korean War (1950-53) shaped East Asia as we know it today. The war also altered the direction of American foreign policy in Asia and established an enduring tone of anti-communism in American popular culture. Despite its importance, the Korean War is commonly known as the "Forgotten War." As an exercise in unforgetting the forgotten war, the course will examine the war's nature and impact through representations in fiction and film, and ask why it still remains the subject of much mystification more than sixty-five years after the ceasefire.
