This introductory course to World History uses World War II as a lens to examine the methodologies, approaches, and sources historians employ to understand and analyze historical periods. In conjunction, a second strand of the class will be to explore the global connections and interactions which characterize World History. Though a military overview and context will be provided, the emphasis of the course will be on digging into topics traditionally neglected; the impact of the war on race, gender, family, children, daily life, and daily ethical decision making. Upon completion of the class, students should have a deeper understanding of both World War II and the historian's craft.
