There is a limit of 20 students for enrolment in this course.
This course aims to provide both a historical and a sociocultural understanding of the origins, development and impact of the Korean War (1950-1953). Often dubbed “the Forgotten War,” the Korean War was an integral part of the global Cold War. The Korean peninsula became one of the most volatile zones in global politics. In addition to reading standard accounts of the war from the perspective of diplomatic and military history, students will also learn about other aspects of the war through its portrayal in literature, films and photography to come to a fuller understanding of the complexity, nuance and legacy of the Korean War. The course examines the deep historical roots that led to the War, the various states, militaries, media and international organizations that became involved in the conflict and the human experiences that are not often included in political or historical narratives.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:1) develop an informed and integrated view of the Korean War within the transnational context
2) understand the Korean War as part of a long continuum of historical developments that link the past together in a transnational context
3) develop critical skills for the understanding of the role of the Korean War in shaping the global Cold War
4) apply skills of critical thinking and assessment to data from conventional archival sources and non-conventional sources
