America has had a number of prominent family political dynasties — the Adamses, the Roosevelts, and the Bushes immediately come to mind. But no family was more influential, or glamorous, over a prolonged stretch of time than Joseph Kennedy and his progeny. For over seven decades, a Kennedy served in the diplomatic corps, in the halls of Congress and the Senate, and in the White House. In addition to their political impact, the Kennedys became cultural icons, spawning fashion trends, and epitomizing a certain brand of American “cool.” Whether one admired the Kennedys or hated them, no one can deny their lasting significance. In this course, we will examine the personal lives and careers of these remarkable figures.
