HI 323 - The Nuclear Age

This course seeks to improve students’ understanding of the historical roots of the nuclear age, to stimulate questions about how film can shape and reflect public attitudes, and explores the legacy of nuclear weapons in the contemporary world. We will deal briefly with the issues surrounding the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan in 1945, examine how both Japan and the U.S. have represented those events in film, and conclude by examining the four main ages of nuclear danger.
