Class Details

This course introduces students to the history of Europe from before the First World to the present. During this period Europe witnessed two world wars, the largest pandemic in recorded history, numerous civil conflicts, the fall of capitalist colonial empires, and the rise and fall of a communist empire. Through a combination of films, artistic works, philosophical interventions, and historical texts, we will look at what made the last century both the most violent and the most productive in Europe’s history. By discussing various possible ways of organizing twentieth-century European history (the Cold War, decolonization, expanded suffrage, scientific progress, etc), we will develop a variety of lenses through which we can read assigned works and grasp both the contours and complexity of Europe’s past.
