Section Information for Spring 2022
This course will discuss ideas and policies concerning peace through world history, with emphasis on recent issues and developments, and with a global focus. The kinds of questions involved include: human nature, is humankind naturally warlike and what’s the evidence from early history? What is the relationship between the major religions and peace, and are there key differences? Why are some regions more peaceful than others? What’s the U.S. take on peace, and should it be revisited? Is war declining, and what are some possible reasons (this will include consideration on the implications of the “Biden doctrine”)? Are we and should we be reconsidering the global framework for peace and war? The course will emphasize discussion, including some student panels, and a paper that combines research and interpretation. Skills development includes writing and problem analysis.
