An introduction to the history of the origins and course of the second world war.
History 338 covers World War II in Europe, but it’s not a conventional military or political course. It begins with the Paris Peace Conference at the end of World War I and goes beyond 1945 to define some of the consequences of World War II that shaped the postwar world, including the Marshall Plan. This ambitious, reading-intensive course includes a wide range of recent articles that shape current historical discussion. Although it addresses military and political events, approximately half of the readings concern social and cultural history and historiography.

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
