05/29/2021 - 08/07/2021 Sat 1:00 – 5:00 PM (Weekend University course – 10 weeks)
This ten week Weekend University class examines United States involvement in Vietnam and the resulting military, social, cultural, and political effects on Americans, effects still experienced today. From initial involvement during World War II, the backing of France and South Vietnam within a Cold War context, and culminating in America’s complete assumption of combat operations, notions of who Americans were and what the United States was were challenged, broken, and replaced. The war stripped away an in-bred innocence extending from the battlefield (were Americans really the “good guys” seeking to save a foreign people?) to America itself (who were the true civic and democratic minded patriots, those protesting or those in abeyance to the government?).
