|COURSE DESCRIPTION:||Blessed are the peacemakers, said Jesus, and this
course offers an
interdisciplinary inquiry into the issues of war and peace in the
Western tradition. The course will mix philosophical and theological
approaches (just war theory, humanitarian intervention, and Christian
non-violence, for example) with historical case studies (especially the
Crusades and the Second World War but also reaching to contemporary
conflicts such as the "War on Terror"). This will be a seminar-style
course based on weekly discussion of a common set of readings. The goal
is to provide students with a heightened awareness of the range of
perspectives on war and peace both in the past and in our world today.
Same as HIST 373.
Prerequisites: HIST 204 or POLI 205
