Course Descriptions: Fall 2013 - HTY 498: America’s Long Cold War, 1917-1990

Instructor:  Nathan Godfried

Time:  Tuesday, 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Description:  This seminar introduces students to the methods, skills, and analytical tools necessary to research and write a substantial paper, based on primary sources, detailing and evaluating the U.S. battle against political radicalism during the twentieth century.  The domestic and international anti-communist crusade, for example, shaped America’s political economy and social, cultural, and intellectual development from World War I to the fall of the Soviet Union and beyond.

Students will address this issue and others by reviewing selected secondary literature, constructing a research prospectus and agenda, examining relevant documentary evidence, writing a series of short essays and a comprehensive research paper, and sharing their findings with their colleagues through formal class presentations.
