Postwar (Spring term) (HIS 29(z))

  • Day and time: Wednesday 9:30 - 10:45
  • Length of course: 1 term. Spring (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 24
  • Start date: 19 January 2022
  • Description:

    This course will be a sequel to the 2020/21 course on How the Second World War Ended, but you will not need to have attended that class to participate in this one. We will be looking at how the postwar world developed - politically, economically and culturally - concentrating on the late 1940s and 1950s, but looking ahead to ask what might be an end date for a coherent account of the period - was it 1953 (death of Stalin and end of Korean War), 1962 (Cuban missile crisis), 1968 (unrest everywhere), mid 1970s (end of Vietnam War, death of Mao) or 1989?
