|Certificates: International Relations|
This course surveys the history of Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, from the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic era to the present, and is intended primarily for first-year students and sophomores. Attention will be devoted to major political, social, economic, and cultural developments, beginning with the many dimensions of the political and industrial revolutions of the 19th century; continuing with the emergence of nation-states and nationalism, working-class movements, the consequences of imperialism and war, and Communism and Fascism; and concluding with study of the Second World War, the reassertion of Europe, and the collapse of the Soviet system.
Examinations in this course require cogent and succinct argumentation of problems of historical interpretation. Analysis of key documents is a major component of study throughout the course and is required on each examination.
