The Korean War (1950-) grew out of World War II and the Cold War. As a conflict, it was global in scale. Although formal military combat ended in 1953, the legacies of the Korean War persist in both political and personal terms. This class focuses on the Korean War as it was experienced and has been remembered by Asian participants. We will explore the narratives of the war together with personal testimonies and reflections. Course assignments and activities will build skills in close reading and historical interpretation.
