Register for "The History and Literature of the World Wars"

April 20, 2020 | Hosted by: ThunderRidge High School

This seminar examines the two wars that shaped and reshaped the American experience of the 20th century. Team-taught by a historian and a literary scholar, the seminar will look at both the battlefield and domestic experience of the war, as well as the issues of civil-military relations, and the connection between our political principles and our military practices. It will consider a variety of historical and literary texts from during and between the two World Wars.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
