This course offers an overview of the history of Europe from an international perspective since 1800. Events, periods, concepts, developments and persons that played an important role within that history will be critically discussed during a series of lectures, such as the revolution of 1848 throughout Europe and its resonances in the wider imperial world; the two world wars and the Cold War; imperialism, state-building and the emergence of supra-national organizations; key historical figures like Woodrow Wilson or Margaret Thatcher. During several classes European developments will be explicitly linked to specifically Dutch as well as wider international developments. Students will also learn about debates among historians how to understand certain developments and be introduced with concepts, theories, methods and sources from the field of (international) political history.
