Eastern Europe

This course offers a graduate survey of the topic of Eastern Europe, exploring the themes of nationalism, religion, communism, and borderlands while also exploring the meaning of “Eastern Europe” as an historical concept. The chronological extent of the course reaches from the sixteenth century to the late twentieth century, with an emphasis on the more modern period. In general, the course will not discuss the history of the Russian empire or the Soviet Union, though some issues will inevitably be relevant to Eastern Europe.
