First Semester. This team-taught course will examine the moral, ideological and historical complexity of the explosion of the atomic bomb during World War II, and subsequent responses in both the United States and Japan.  Feminist theories, studies of nationalism, and critical race theory will shape our comparative analyses of political, military, and scientific decisions, as well as cultural texts in Japan and the United States.  Course materials include literature, film, visual arts, government documents, survivor narratives, and recent historical analyses.  Identical to EAST 241.
