Primary Instructor:

The year is 1945. With Europe in ruins, what was to become of the cradle of Western civilization? This course will examine the continent’s many and multifaceted transformations, from the Stalinization of Eastern Europe to the Cold War, the advent of mass consumption in the West, the end of colonial empires, popular protest movements, European integration, the fall of communism after 1989, and the return of war with the Balkan conflict. We will look at these issues from the perspectives of both citizens and states. Along the way we will juxtapose the ideal of a unified Europe and the reality of national and regional tensions, among them the divisions between North and South, East and West. Ultimately we will trace not only the hopeful politics of European reconstruction but also the fearful maneuvering to protect Fortress Europe from outside influences. Students are expected to attend and actively participate in section, complete the weekly reading assignments, and write a short paper and a midterm and final exam.
