Technology, Warfare and Social Change
This course introduces students to the technological and social implications of warfare from the ancient to the modern age. However, rather than dwell on the minutiae of military technologies and battle strategies, it explores the technological connections between war and society through asking such questions as how conflict fostered technology exchanges and medical advances; how improved naval technology furthered exploration; how military technologies found civilian use; and how new technologies changed the ethics of war. (Formerly HST 116).
