EACH GIRL'S SUCCESS
An exceptional independent boarding and day school for girls grades 8-12

War and Society

(offered in alternating years, not available 2020-2021)

The study of war may seem to be an exercise in encountering the horror, brutality, and futility of armed conflict. While this is partially true, this course will also encourage students to go beyond and to critically analyze issues central to human nature, including conflict and harmony, the experience of wartime, questions about heroism and glory, the conception of the “other,” and national identity.  By the end of this course, each student will have become much more knowledgeable about the many conflicts that took place in the 20th century. She also will become an informed global citizen who is able to think critically about current events and be an active and passionate advocate for alternatives to war.
