HIS 388-01 - Advanced Studies: The (Cultural) Cold War: Global History

4 credits (Fall)
“Relying on monographs, films, artworks, and different primary sources, this seminar examines the history of the Cold War by focusing on its cultural and intellectual upshots, struggles, and debates as they unfolded in the third world. The seminar’s cultural and geographic foci will challenge the traditional study of the Cold War as a political, diplomatic clash between the US and the USSR and help students appreciate the Cold War as a truly global, cultural conflict.” Note: this course does not satisfy research seminar requirement. 

Prerequisite: HIS 100  and HIS 236 , HIS 261 HIS 262 , or HIS 266 .
