See You in Class - Virginia since World War II

By Ronald L. Heinemann
April 4, 11, and 18, 2013   |   Time: 5:30–7 pm

The Great Depression and World War II marked the decisive watershed of twentieth-century America. If Virginia's social and political conservatism mitigated the upheaval of those years, change nevertheless came even to the Old Dominion. This course will highlight the dramatic events, colorful personalities, and contentious issues that influenced Virginians after the war. It will consist of three sessions: from the immediate postwar years through massive resistance; the Godwin and Holton years; and from the late '70s to the present. Ronald L. Heinemann is professor emeritus of history at Hampden-Sydney College and lead author of Old Dominion, New Commonwealth: A History of Virginia 1607–2007.
