“1945” is an interdisciplinary course, which presents a synchronic analysis of the global traumas throughout the year 1945. Students will evaluate a wide range of primary and secondary documents pertaining to the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. The assignments will demand a nuanced interpretive ability regarding primary and secondary source texts and their historical contexts, and all assignments will be “digitally born” in this website, courtesy of OU Create.
