War, Peace and Security: Humanity and History (3145LHS)

For millennia humans have come to understand themselves and others through the experience of war. Drawing on world history, on histories of violence, and of medicine and the body, this course explores the different ways in which the waging of war - as conquest, as a sacred duty, as a right of nations, as a necessary evil, or even as the means to end all wars - have shaped our understanding of peace, security and humanity across a broad sweep of time. Students will work with primary documents and images, and will be able to develop their skills as history researchers and writers in their own relevant research projects.
