Class Details

U.S. involvement in Vietnam affected nearly every aspect of American life, including the country’s overall foreign policy, its military strategy, the relationship between various branches of government, the nation’s political trajectory, the role of media in society, youth culture, race relations, and more. This seminar explores America’s war in Vietnam and its dramatic ramifications at home and abroad. We will evaluate the Vietnam War era as a turning point in U.S. history–and in the role of the U.S. in the world–by reading and discussing a number of scholarly works on domestic and international aspects of the conflict. Students will develop an original research topic and research and write a 20- to 25- page paper, based in primary sources, on one aspect of America’s Vietnam War.
