MLS 530 War and Peace: Conflict and Human Nature
The seminar will examine our complex attitudes toward war and peace, as elaborated through literature, philosophy, and history. We will consider topics such as the moral issues of starting and waging war, the impact of war on participants and those affected by it, how issues of war and peace frame our global reality, and efforts to encourage peace. The seminar will also explore imaginative literature about war — memoirs, fiction, and poetry — with particular emphasis on the literature of the American Civil War and the Vietnam War.

Professor Benjamin Goluboff (English)
