HIST 259 - History and Literature of the Vietnam War

(3,0) 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 - English Composition I .
This interdisciplinary, team-taught course will examine the history and the literature of the Vietnam War. It explores both the antecedents of the war, in terms of European colonialism, Vietnamese nationalism, and American foreign policy, as well as pivotal moments such as the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution of 1964 and the Tet Offensive of 1968. It will study the history of the war, the literature born out of this war and the relationships between this literature and this conflict. Finally, it will consider the war’s legacy: its consequences and lessons, and the relevance of this legacy today. Students may take this course for credit in English or History.
