This class will explore the history of the Vietnam War and its relevance to the present. We will particularly cover the legacy of the Vietnam War in understanding how America wages its "war on terror."

We will also discuss how the "lessons" of the Vietnam War have been neglected (or forgotten) as the United States has pursued interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

What is Think Olio?


Think Olio is here to put the liberation back into the liberal arts.

Classically, the liberal arts, were the education considered essential for a free person to take an active part in civic life. To counter a humanities that has been institutionalized and dehumanized we infuse critical thinking, openness, playfulness, and compassion into our learning experience.
