About the Course:

This course is intended to give students in the liberal arts an opportunity to understand the changing world, to comprehend America’s role in that world, and to ponder the political and cultural challenges that are likely to confront their generation in the future. After the end of the Cold War, certain historians such as Francis Fukuyama proclaimed the “end of history.” History, however, survived its “end” and came back as complex and disturbing as ever, which became patently clear after the tragic events of September 11th. In this course, students will get the historical background necessary to understand the developments that led to September 11th. In addition to that, they would be expected to keep in touch with the latest news on day-to-day basis. Meets the requirement for Humanities/Fine Arts Elective.

Course offered: Spring.
