Course description

"The long twentieth century" begins as early as 1870 and continues to this day. Changes came extra fast during this period and not all of them can be included in a single course. Teachers therefore choose different focuses for their courses and sometimes concentrate on a more limited geographic region (Russia and Eastern Europe, Central, or Western Europe), others opt to cover only parts of this period or deal exclusively with political/social-economic/cultural/intellectual history.

 Dr. Ofri Ilany

 The twentieth century is over, and we now live in a different era. This factual statement has far-reaching historiographical implications. The dramatic changes that have taken place in the past two decades affect the way we see and make sense of major events in the previous century. The course will examine some of the social, cultural and political transformations of this tumultuous century.
