HIST 383 - Secret History of the Twentieth Century


This course will explore major events in twentieth-century world history-such as the two world wars, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Coup against Iranian president Mosaddeq in 1953, the so-called War against Terror-with regard to the role of espionage and other secret activities. Equally important, the course will track major structural developments in twentieth-century world history-particularly the shift from imperialism to nationalism, modernization, and national identity formation between secular and religious notions of kinship-through the role of state intelligence services. Throughout, the course will put special emphasis on the perspective of non-western actors and participants in secret operations and highlight the impact of secret policies on those non-western countries.
