CORE COURSE

Competing Narratives: Modern European History
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
A study of how selective ways of remembering Europe’s past have shaped collective and individual identities. This course examines the complex web of competing historical narratives, studying concepts and discourses in the contemporary field of history and memory studies. Europe – the cradle of liberal democracy, civil rights, Western culture and secular civilization, but also fertile ground for colonialist expansion, racist violence, social engineering, and the brutal tyrannies of the 20th century: in this course you will explore the staggering ambiguities of the European experience in the modern era. Using Warsaw and Berlin as powerful case studies, you will study the trajectory of Modern Europe: from the ambiguities and pitfalls of nationalism, through the catastrophic destruction and genocidal violence of WWII to the rebuilding of the continent as a diverse, yet unified entity. The two war-torn but revitalized capitals, bridging East and West, provide the perfect gateway for an exploration of the fascinating complexities of European Modern History. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin-Warsaw 
Core Course Week: Study tour to Northern Germany-Western Denmark + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen
