Description

History 368 surveys the main events and themes in European history from the French Revolution to the period preceding World War l. To understand how this era’s transformations became determinative and/or consequential in world history, we examine a series of profound shifts in European political, economic, social and cultural domains. Topics include revolutions, domestic politics, geopolitical interactions, nationalism, imperialism and the formation of new states; the emergence of mechanized economies and of urbanization; the challenges experienced by social classes and groups; and influential modes of cultural expression which crossed national lines.
