Class Details

In 1961, United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the global dangers of what he called the “military-industrial complex.” In this course, we will interrogate the military-scientific complex, or the imbrication of militarism and scientific knowledge. Surveying conflicts from the colonial wars of the late 19th century through to the present-day War on Terror, this course will consider how empire, networks of expert knowledge, resource extraction, environmental contamination, and land degradation have shaped the modern world. Students will engage a range of textual materials including books, films, photographs, and news reports.
