HIST 232
Twentieth-Century Europe: Nationalism, War, and Empire Spring 2023
Division II

Class Details

This course is a survey of twentieth-century Europe. While providing students with a historical basis for understanding the continent’s social, political, and cultural changes, this course pays attention to two interrelated phenomena: first, the process by which Europe went from being a constellation of empires to one of nation-states; second, the heterogenous ways in which Europe’s residents participated in the making — and then the remaking — of modern Europe. 2023 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the European Union. This course provides students with a historical framework for understanding how and why Europe’s residents rallied around this project of European integration and did so after having lived under imperial and national formations.
