Section Description

Europe entered into one of the most tumultuous periods of its history between 1914 and 1945. From the home front to the trenches, the Great War marked a definitive end to the world of the nineteenth century and cleared in its wake the autocratic empires of the continent in a wave of revolutionary unrest. Yet perceptions of a ?return to normalcy? by the mid-1920s were only fleeting. As capitalism fell into crisis at the end of the decade, Europeans increasingly turned to new ideologies to solve the problems of modernity, ultimately ushering in a second catastrophic war of unprecedented violence. Drawing on a variety of sources?from films to memoirs?this course will explore the turbulence and dynamism of the interwar years, covering themes such as: the social and cultural legacies of World War I; mass culture and the avant-garde; the emergence of Stalinism within the Soviet Union; and Italian fascism, Nazism, and the Holocaust.
