War and Society in the 20th Century
This course focuses on the impact of the 20th-century wars on the people of the English-speaking world, especially Canada. The course emphasizes issues related to the Second World War but both seminar discussions and research papers include topics related to the First World War and other 20th-century conflicts. Issues to be examined include: medical and psychiatric developments; personnel selection; veterans' re-establishment programs; the impact of war upon families; economic transformations, including labour relations; as well as a range of military questions arising from operational history.
