Coexistence and Violence in Europe: Jews, Muslims, Roma and their Neighbors
HIST 305
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

From the end of the 18th to the beginning of the 21st century, the territories of Central and Eastern Europe were transformed from imperial borderlands with religiously and ethnically diverse populations into homogenous nation-states. This course will examine the processes that remade these borderlands, along with the changing relations between the various ethnic and religious communities that dwelled within them. Students will consider examples of both peaceful coexistence and violent conflict among these populations, as well as the impact of the modern state, its institutions, and ideologies such as nationalism, liberalism, socialism, and fascism on these regions. Throughout the course, students will consider especially the history of Jewish, Muslim, and Romani minorities in light of major themes.
