AHG 680 4HL: The World Wars in American History and Literature
July 14, 2019 - July 19, 2019$578 – $1631
Ashland University, Ashland, Ohio
This course examines the two wars that shaped and reshaped the American experience of the 20th century. Team-taught by a historian and a literary scholar, the course will look at both the battlefield and domestic experience of the war, as well as the issues of civil-military relations, and the connection between our political principles and our military practices. It will consider historical and literary texts such as Wilson’s War Message and Fourteen Points; an African-American soldier’s letter home detailing discrimination in France during World War I; Carrie Chapman Catt’s Address to Congress; James Fahey’s diary of his WWII experiences; the Supreme Court’s Korematsu decision; stories of Ernest Hemingway and Philip Roth; Willa Cather’s One of Ours; and poetry by Marilyn Nelson and Robert Frost. An open book essay exam will require students to reflect on the principal themes of the course.
