HIST 336 - 20th Century Europe 3 hours


Exploration of patterns of difference and commonality across the countries of Europe. From World War I through the Russian Revolution, the rise of fascism and totalitarianism, and through the Cold War, an often ferocious ideological battle between liberal democracy, communism and fascism dominated European life. As the Cold War came to an end and the ideal of a united European community emerged, the relations between countries and peoples changed dramatically. Moreover, in almost all of these aspects of European relations, the workings of nationality, race, and ethnicity played important roles. In addition to confronting the profound ethical dilemmas which accompanied one of the darkest centuries of Europe’s history, students complete this class with a factual and conceptual understanding of the dynamic political, economic, social and cultural factors which affected Europe between 1914 and the 21st century. Prerequisite: HIST 102  or HIST 112 .
