World War II: A Rich Source of Metaphor for our Time

exco's picture


RAY will cancel the class if he does not hear from anyone by Thursday.

At this point in US History, World War II can almost seem like it is a forgotten war. What lessons and understandings might we reach by looking back onto many of the peculiarities, ideas, and stories from the time? This class will delve further into the metaphor that Nazism and the Third Reich offers us as a means to understand the present political situation in the US and the world. NOTE: If you would like to get in touch with Ray please call him.
