World War I

This course is an intensive engagement with the historiography of World War I, one of the most important events of the twentieth century. When it began, Europe was the center of global empires, economic networks, and culture. By its end, four great empires had collapsed, millions were dead or injured, and the preconditions for the rise of fascism were established. This course examines major interpretive debates over the origins, fighting, and consequences of the war for the societies that clashed in it. Prerequisite: History majors.
