HIST 334: History of the Great War

Economic crises, mass unemployment, rising right-wing authoritarianism at home and abroad, and raging fights over the meaning of America itself—the Great Depression resonates with our own era in fundamentals ways. Through readings and watchings and class discussions (there are no lectures in this class), you will learn how your forebears survived the ‘worst hard times’ and came out stronger on the other side.
