Kommentar

This seminar seeks to shed new light on the U.S. military in the 20th and 21st centuries. In so doing, this seminar first describes and analyzes some major historical/political/sociocultural developments of/within the U.S. military in order to provide some context. The seminar explores how the U.S. military has evolved through much of the 20th and 21st century, making it a force of Empire that stretches across the globe. This part covers aspects such as wartime/peacetime buildup, the transition from a conscript to a volunteer army, as well as the different branches of the U.S. military. This part is only meant to provide some general context. More importantly, the seminar utilizes an intersectional approach to better understand the U.S. military as a whole. Intersectionality –the interplay of entities such as race, gender, class, etc.– helps in gaining a broader understanding of U.S. military. By focusing on gender as a category of analysis, the seminar explores changing images of masculinity and femininity as well as mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion (e.g. for women, LGBTQ). In utilizing race as an analytical tool, the seminar describes and examines how/why ethnic minorities (African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Americans) have been marginalized in the Armed Forces and how/why they have sought to gain entry into the military and American society as a whole. In addition to that, this seminar discusses intersectional connections to other categories of identification (e.g. class, sexuality, among others). Together, this seminar is meant to critically explore the U.S. military. The U.S. military functions as a prism that allows for a more nuanced view of American society as a whole. This seminar is not meant for military buffs or armchair strategists. Rather, it is intended for those who are seriously interested in deconstructing U.S. history and who seek a deeper understanding of the intersectionality of race, gender, etc. that have shaped and continue to shape the U.S. military and, by extension, U.S. society.
