Course description

Post-war European History: Meeting ONCE per week, this course offers an introduction to European history since 1945 with an emphasis on the major events which changed attitudes and behaviour in the late 20th century. The historical context of two world wars will underpin understanding of subsequent events. What new ideas and innovations whether creative, scientific or social shaped our lives in the last half century? Why did Europe feel it necessary to form an economic and political entity in the EU and how successful has it been? How has the technological revolution changed the way we behave and think?

As in the preceding course: ‘Europe’s Twentieth Century’, students will be encouraged to join in a lively debate and express their thoughts on how we look at history. We will also reflect on how we remember the past and what tools can be used to enhance our understanding of history.

Tony Judt’s book: ‘Postwar. A History of Europe since 1945’ will provide a good source of reference for this course.

Each session (Wednesdays) will be accompanied by clips from documentary and feature films which illustrate the subject of discussion and bring the period to life.
