Course Description: This course on Modern History covers the period from the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution to the dramatic events in the first decade of the twenty-first century, such as the American invasion of Iraq. The course focuses not only on Europe and the United States but also deals extensively with developments in Africa, Australia, Asia and Latin America. It thus provides a truly global perspective on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and after. In addition, it gives an introduction to a selection of classical debates in modern history such as the debates on industrialization, on the origins of modern imperialism, and on the causes of World Wars I and II, the Holocaust and the Cold War. It also pays attention to one of the oldest questions asked of historians: can one learn lessons from history? In addition, in this course students are invited to follow their own interests.
