EURO 600.001/HIST 698.001 (Winter 2014)
European Studies Proseminar: Teaching European History After the Global Turn
Instructor: Joshua Cole

This course explores the ways that transnational perspectives have changed the way historians think of “European” history. It aims for a wide audience of graduate students who expect to be responsible for teaching European history, without always being specialists in this field. The course will have a broadly chronological structure, paying close attention to the following themes:  the "Atlantic World," the Industrial Revolution, European imperialisms in the "Democratic Age," European integration in the era of decolonization and the Cold War, and European integration after 1989.

EURO 801 (Directed Reading) 

This course is available for students who wish to pursue independent study with a faculty member focused on European studies.

For additional course listings and descriptions, please refer to the LSA Course Guide.
