Course Description: This is a graduate level course that is part of the Laurea Magistrale program. The course is intended for advanced level students only. Enrollment is by consent of the instructor. Students who complete a final paper on a pre-approved topic are awarded 1 extra unit. Maximum units for this course are 6. The course focuses on research problems in a wide series of topics drawn from migration history, history of ideas and their circulation, material exchange and consumption patterns, global labor history, social protests, transnational mobilizations processes, power forms and resistance strategies. Through direct contact with specific research paths, students are able to apply research techniques and methodologies and to use sources and literature in a critical manner. The first part of the course focuses on theoretical and methodological aspects concerning a world-historical approach to European contemporary history: how to study Europe and contemporary European history with reference to analytical frames drawing on World history. The second part of the courses focuses on European migration history from a global perspective. Particular attention is devoted to different forms of migration in relation to the social and political impact exerted on the societies involved. The topic is presented through case studies of anarchist migration between the second half of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century that students are asked to present in class. The third and last part of the course focuses on decolonization, related social conflicts/movements and its impact on the European political sphere from the 1960s until the 1980s. How antiimperialist and anticolonial criticism addressed Europe and how European left-wing groups and parties reacted to the rising challenges. This topic is illustrated and discussed through case studies presented by the students. Readings are presented either individually or in small groups of students on a weekly basis accordingly to the syllabus.
