War and Violence - 21001

War, colonialism, oppression, national/social humiliation are among the violent modes of human interaction. The War and Violence connected courses study them theoretically as well as historically. POLS 357  inquires about the nature of violence and asks if violence is an inherent form of human interaction. It studies the political theories of violence, non-violence, and revolutionary violence. HIST 235  studies state-organized violence and asks how it has changed over time. An answer emerges through the historical examination of military organizations as well as war dynamics in the context of the US military.
