HIST 3653 - War and Technology

3 Credit Hour(s)

This course explores the relationship between technology and warfare from antiquity to the present and considers the origins of weapons technology from a variety of social and political con- texts. The complex relationship between technology, tactics, and strategy provides a useful narrative framework. A number of potential treatments (e.g., role of engineering, impact of the industrial revolution, the origins and consequences of total war- fare, etc.) and course foci may be explored. Case studies will be used to illustrate the impact of technological innovations on war- fare.
