April 18 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
The rise of tension between the United States and the Soviet Union is a story that has often been told. How did these developments abroad affect life in the United States? This seminar will focus on postwar anticommunism, culminating in theMcCarthy Era, but will also focus on changes in home and family life, as well as popular culture in the postwar period.
