Movement, Mobilization, and Militarization: The Bay Area Home Front in World War II

Two one-week Landmarks workshops for seventy-two school teachers on the social, economic, and cultural impact of World War II in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This proposal is for two intensive week-long workshops for humanities teachers, focusing on the themes of movement, mobilization, and militarization in the San Francisco Bay Area during World War II. It will be hosted by the University of California, Berkeley History-Social Science Project, in partnership with UC Berkeley’s History Department, Regional Oral History Office, and Bancroft Library, as well as the National Park Service and Presidio Trust of San Francisco. The workshops will be held at historic sites of national importance throughout the Bay Area. Participating educators will study the workshop themes through physical landmarks, oral histories, film, fiction, academic texts and scholar lectures. These workshops will increase teacher content knowledge of the impact of World War II on the economy, demography, culture, and social relations of the Bay Area as a means for understanding the trends of the effects of World War II and the Home Front throughout the United States.
