Though only a small fraction of the American public ever serves in the military, veterans have long been a powerful force in American life. This course will consider veterans as both a social group, capable of exerting political pressure on issues of national import, and as cultural icons of gender and civic virtue. More specifically, we will examine the homecoming experience, the postwar recovery process for injured veterans, the role of military service in electoral politics, the veterans' role in expanding the powers of the federal government, and depictions of veterans in American popular culture, from the 18th century to the present. Our synchronous online classes will be a mix of lecture and discussion, and assessment will consist of a series of short research and writing assignments. Skills developed in the course include analyzing sources, framing questions, critical thinking, formal and informal writing, and oral communication.
HIST 389 DL1 is a synchronous distance education section.
