The course "Since 9/11: America's Wars in the New Century" is open to both NSSR students (MA and PhD) and advanced undergraduates. It is designed to be a terrific learning experience for everyone, with different kinds and quantities of work for different kinds of students. All students will participate in our class site visit and the written response to it, and draft periodic reading responses to explore particular concepts. All students, in addition, are expected to do private screenings (via youtube or streaming services) of assigned films. The NSSR students will have on select weeks supplemental readings, chiefly texts with complex theoretical content. The undergraduates will write 6-8 page midterm and final essays in response to specific questions. The graduate students may, at their choosing, do the midterm and final essays (though in the 10-12 page range). Or they may choose instead to write a 20-25 page research paper on a topic of their choosing, based on close consultation with the instructor.
