In 2021W, the topic for HIST 105B is The War on Terror: A Global History. This course relays a history of the varied conflicts, moral and legal issues, and ideological positions that make up the nebulous, ongoing 'War on Terror.' Beyond exploring the 'big' players and issues, we will undertake three more significant tasks. First, we will dive deep into local contexts to investigate the WOT's impact on diverse communities and individuals, exploring how they have experienced, contributed to and/or resisted the WOT. Second, we will examine how the WOT has helped create a politics of fear that permeates our existence and how people have confronted that politics. Finally, we will grapple with the challenges of understanding the history of a phenomenon in which we remain mired.
