This course will explore changes and continuities in European societies following the devastation of the Second World War with the intention of placing the present in historical context. Topics to be discussed will include: the origins and impact of the Cold War; efforts to ?come to terms? with the Nazi past; decolonization; the student revolt of the late 1960s; transformations of capitalism; and the revolutions of 1989. We will draw on a variety of sources from films and primary documents to novels and memoirs. Particular attention will be devoted to dissident perspectives from both sides of the Iron Curtain.
