Course Description

The Vietnam War shaped a generation of young Americans and Vietnamese alike, as the decades long conflict shook Cold War ideologies and domestic politic structures to their foundations, all while the fight for civil rights raged on. But many questions still remain to this day. Why did America fight in Vietnam? What did the North Vietnamese want? Why and how did the war end? How did the war influence a generation of young people in North America? We will examine the historical context of the war in Vietnam, the American involvement in Southeast Asia, and the impact of the war on the American home front. In addition to lectures and discussion, we will examine war footage from Vietnam and the Civil Rights Movement in America.
