Description

This courses focuses on the political, social, cultural, and intellectual history of Germany during Europe’s Long Nineteenth Century from the French Revolution to the First World War. We will examine conceptions of German identity prior to the creation of a German nation-state, and how the rise of Imperial Germany after 1871 shaped the process of identity formation. Special attention will be paid to the impact of revolutionary wars during the 19th century, Bismarckian foreign and domestic policies, and Germany’s role in the origins of World War I.
