This lecture explores these questions: if a republic in the United States was once constituted in relation to death and suffering, what happened to U.S. war politics and culture when the country was continually at war?
In her landmark work on death in the American Civil War, historian Drew Gilpin Faust showed the way war-related carnage deeply affected American culture and society, resulting in a “Republic of Suffering.” This lecture explores these questions: if a republic in the United States was once constituted in relation to death and suffering, what happened to U.S. war politics and culture when the country was continually at war, yet the American people no longer suffered its consequences? Has the distance of war’s carnage enabled endless war?
