Coming of Age in War and Peace (ITW-101)
All of us have grown up in the shadows of war and peace. Some of us have fought in wars. Perhaps some of us carry mental and physical scars of war within and upon us. We hope and dream for the ideal of world peace. We live and cope with the specter of a current war and fear of another world war. The purpose of this course is not provide a plan to achieve peace in our time; rather, through literature, film, music, and art to illuminatehow writers and artists imagine how young people have come of agein war and peace; how they and their families have endured, or not endured, war's wounds; and how, in particular, they have sought and struggled to survive in war's aftermath.
