Course Description: This upper-division seminar will examine the major events and developments of postwar, Cold War, and contemporary Europe. Through a combination of mini-lectures and class discussions, we will explore a variety of historical problems, issues of interpretation, and historical scholarship on the period, with an emphasis on developing skills in critical thinking and understanding the origins of the challenges Europe and the world grapple with today. Topics include postwar reconstruction, decolonization, Stalinism and the Cold War, 1960s/70s radicalism, changing gender relations, and the influx of immigrants of non-European origin, who have helped to dramatically transform European national identities and popular culture.
