Topic:Camlot:Kennedys/WhiteHse – 12161 – HIS 440 – A
This course will examine the Kennedy administration. It will focus on the politics and policies of the administration, both foreign and domestic, but also on how the Kennedy’s presented themselves during their White House years, including the important role played, not only by the President, but by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy as well. In this sense, the course will focus on the public image they carefully crafted, as evident in their glamours fashion, their famous White House Parties, their support of the Arts, and all the other endeavors that created the myth of Camelot. In these and other ways we will try to separate myth from reality in the Kennedy White House, and determine,if we can, why the Kennedys remain to this day the most popular President and First Lady to occupy the White House in the last seventy years.

Topic:Hiroshima – 12303 – HIS 440 – B
This course will examine the first and only use of what would later be called a “weapon of mass destruction,” namely the atomic bombs that President Harry S. Truman used to end the Second World War against Japan. Drawing on original source documents, and essays by a diverse assortment of leading scholars, we will examine the military and political context surrounding Truman’s decision to drop the bombs. We will also consider alternative strategies for ending the war, look at how historians have debated those strategies, and examine how Americans, and the Japanese, have remembered the atomic bombings in the years since the war ended. After reviewing and discussing the relevant literature, students will have a chance to put themselves in place of one of Truman’s colleagues in 1945, review all alternative strategies for the president, and give their own recommendation for the best way to bring the war to a conclusion.
