In this class we will explore the history of the northeastern part of Europe, encompassing roughly the lands now included within Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. Our story begins in the middle ages, when the loosely organized communities living in these territories first developed large-scale political institutions, and ends with the dawn of the modern era in the late 19th century. We will study how the people of Eastern Europe developed their own peculiar political and social systems, and dealt with the region’s rich cultural, linguistic, and religious diversity. This was a land marked by brutal exploitation and inequality, but also by unprecedented political liberties and privileges, and this paradoxical overlap of freedom and oppression will be one of the main themes of our course. We will also highlight the cultural richness of a region where Christianity, Judaism, and Islam met–sometimes in conflict, but usually in peaceful coexistence.
