In recent years East Central Europe has often been in the news, bringing us both encouraging stories about the end of Communism and appalling accounts of the war in the former Yugoslavia. This course will help make sense of the triumph and tragedy of Eastern Europe. We will explore the region's rich and complex ethnic, political, and cultural history: the migrations into the region of diverse peoples; the role of Catholicism, Orthodoxy, and Islam; the growth of powerful empires; the emergence of nationalism in the 19th century; the establishment of nation-states after World War I, and the region's tragic experiences with Fascism and Communism. Special emphasis will be placed on the dramatic events since 1989, as new political, economic, social, and cultural norms are being constructed after 40 years of communism. To place recent developments in perspective, we will also explore, critically, ethnic tensions, social and economic development, gender issues, and the rich literary and artistic traditions that have characterized the region. The course is structured around lectures by UM and visiting specialists and provides a broad multidisciplinary overview of the region. Requirements: midterm, final, and one paper.
