IS 430 Social Life of War: Political, Cultural and Identity Process in Global Conflict

This course explores war and violent conflict from a socio-cultural perspective. The course explores the ways in which war and violent conflict reshape social structures, create new cultural processes in reaction to altered reality, and reconstitute identities. Students read and discuss ethnographic accounts that show how war and violent conflict are experienced at the personal, cultural and social level. This course enhances and complicates understandings of what conflict is and what it means for people and social groups who are forced to endure it.
