Survey of European history, 1648-present.


Open to Degree and CDE students

Section Description

This class offers a broad survey of European history from the seventeenth century to the present. During the semester, we will explore the significant political, cultural, social, economic, and diplomatic developments that have shaped the European consciousness in the modern period. While numerous facets of historical study are covered in this class, a primary emphasis will be placed on peoples and cultures. Along these lines, rather than focusing exclusively on military campaigns and diplomatic machinations in discussing the First World War, we will cover in detail the impact of war on the everyday lives of European men and women and the cultural legacies of this cataclysmic event. This course will also attempt to convey the complexities of European identities in this period by paying special attention to gender, class, racial, ethnic, and religious differences. Students will acquire from this class a general understanding of the major developments in European history since the seventeenth century; a clearer sense of how knowledge of the European past enables a more sophisticated understanding of the contemporary world; and an ability to analyze critically historical texts and documents. Students will be expected to participate in class discussions, take several exams, and complete both in-class and out-of-class writing assignments. Concentration: Europe (HI02)
