This course is a graduate reading seminar that will examine developments in European history between 1815 and the present. We will explore the intersecting strands of political, social, intellectual, and cultural movements of this period, through topics including: industrialization and labor; class, gender, and race relations; urbanization and urbanism; nationalism and imperialism; developments in science, technology, and medicine; mass culture and politics; decolonization and migration. Our investigations will be both historical and historiographical. On the one hand, we will gain a deeper understanding of the major issues and themes spanning 19th- and 20th-century politics, culture, and society, and how they have come to shape our understanding of modernity. On the other, we will analyze how historians' methods and theoretical frameworks have evolved over time to generate new approaches and perspectives to the study of modern Europe.

HIST 606 DL1 is a distance education section that meets synchronously. Students should expect to meet on the day and time scheduled.
