History 333 (Hi 24) Europe since 1945

Class Meeting Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:00 PM-2:15 PM

Description of the Course: Devastated and impoverished in 1945, Europe lay in the shadow of the United States and the Soviet Union. Although the last sixty years have presented terrible challenges, the European people have experienced a remarkable regeneration during this period. Europeans have had to adjust to new realities that have seemingly emerged overnight. To adapt to a changed world, they had to assume new roles. This course will study issues concerning European identity and devote itself to the following questions: How have different European nations reconstructed themselves and changed their identity? To what extent has a single European identity emerged? In what ways has Europe's relationship with the rest of the world changed? Topics covered include: the Cold War, the postwar "economic miracle," Communist rule in Eastern Europe, European unification, immigration, and the Revolutions of 1989.

This course fulfills a requirement for: International Relations majors

This course is taught by: Professor Hugh Dubrulle
