COURSE DESCRIPTION: Europe in 1945 was a continent that had been devastated by war, nationalism, forced population transfers, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. Today, an enlarged European Union encompasses the largest free market economy in the world, promotes the values of democracy and human rights globally, and citizens of the E.U. enjoy unprecedented freedom of mobility. How do we explain this transformation and the different social, political, and economic paths taken by of countries of Europe from the postwar period through the Cold War and up to the present? How did Europeans reconstruct their societies after the war? While the nation-state and popular sovereignty was central to this process of reconstruction, in what ways did transnational social, economic, and political ties contribute to a reshaping of the nationstate? Despite the Cold War division of the continent, can we see signs of convergence of European societies during this period? How did new social movements and transborder ties among civil society organizations facilitate the democratization of Europe? To what extent did they contribute to the “return” of eastern European countries to Europe after the collapse of Communism in the eastern bloc? What actors contributed to the processes of European integration that created the European Communities/European Union? How have Europeans commemorated their violent pasts and why do these memories continue to inform European society and politics today? This course will explore these and other questions, through the engagement with historiographical debates in postwar and contemporary European history. Many textbooks on postwar Europe focus solely on the integration of western European countries or treat the histories of the eastern and western halves of the continent in isolation from each other. In this course, we will take a different approach, attempting to showcase the diverse ways in which Europeans on both sides of the Iron Curtain dealt with common social, political, cultural and economic issues faced by modern societies. We will attend to the ways that Europeans’ lives have been transformed by broader global changes such as the emergence of the superpowers of the United States and the Soviet Union, decolonization, the collapse of Communism, and processes of globalization. We will pay particular attention to the ways in which Europeans from all walks of life were actors who possessed a degree of agency in these contested processes.
2 COURSE OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this course are to provide students with an advanced level introduction to major historiographical issues in the history of postwar and contemporary Europe. Students will learn about current debates in the field on a variety of key topics. In both their class discussions and written work, they will gain practice in debating and engaging with scholarly arguments in the academic literature on contemporary European history. They will also develop their historical research and critical thinking skills through their shorter papers, oral presentations, and their major written assignment. REQUIRED COURSE READINGS: Course readings will be made available via the Ares Course Reserves system (link from CU Learn page or directly at http://libares01.carleton.ca/). In some cases or where last minute changes to readings are made, readings may also be made available in electronic format on CU Learn (https://www.carleton.ca/culearn/). If you find that a required reading is not available for a given week, please notify the instructor responsible for that session immediately. Students are expected to come to class having prepared all of the required readings for a particular week. Required readings are indicated with a bullet. SUPPLEMENTAL COURSE READINGS: For each weeks’ topic, students will find an extended list of recommended readings that can be used for students who wish to explore a particular topic in more depth. This list can also serve as a basis for finding sources for the major written assignment. For graduate students doing oral presentations, this is a good place to start to find literature relevant to your topic that can serve as a basis for your presentation. In addition, for students who have little or no background in postwar and contemporary European history, you may find one of the following synthetic works helpful: • Judt, Tony. Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945. London: Penguin, 2006 (long but highly readable narrative history by a major scholar; important for establishing key questions in the field). • Jarausch, Konrad. Out of Ashes: A New History of Europe in the Twentieth Century. Princeton: Princeton UP, 2015. (More recent survey by eminent scholar in field; emphasis on the contradictions of modernity; covers both halves of century but chapters on postwar could be read on their own). • Ther, Philip. Europe Since 1989. Princeton: Princeton UP, 2016 (an original, recent synthetic work with emphasis on social and economic transformations and excellent coverage of central and eastern Europe). • Kenney, Padraic. The Burdens of Freedom: Eastern Europe Since 1989 (concise introduction to eastern European issues). • Rosemary Wakeman, Themes in Modern European History since 1945. London: Routledge 2003 (multi-authored survey). • Buchanan, Tom. Europe’s Troubled Peace, 1945-2000. 2nd. ed. London: Blackwell, 2012. (advanced textbook survey strong on political and international history). • Gilbert, Mark. European Integration: A Concise History. Revised, Updated edition. Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2011. • Pittaway, Mark. Eastern Europe 1939-2000. London: Bloomsbury, 2004 (useful survey of postwar eastern Europe with an emphasis on social history).
Stone, Dan, ed. The Oxford Handbook of Postwar European History. Oxford: Oxford UP, 2012 (Comprehensive handbook with essays and suggestions for further reading on key issues and themes).
When conducting research for their final papers, students may find the following database and journals helpful: Database: Historical Abstracts – Excellent indexing service with some full text links to journal articles; coverage is international and includes original language materials https://library.carleton.ca/find/databases/historical-abstracts. Select Journals: American Historical Review, Cold War History, Contemporary British History, Contemporary European History, Central European History, European Review of History, European History Quarterly, German History, History and Memory, European Review of Economic History, European Legacy, Journal of Contemporary European Studies, Journal of Contemporary History, Journal of European Integration, Journal of European Studies, Journal of Modern History, Journal of Modern European History, Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History, Slavic Review COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND GRADING SCHEME: Undergraduates (EURR 4303/HIST 4606) Assignments: Percentage Due Date Attendance and Participation 20% History in Current Events Presentation: 10% 2 Reading Analysis papers, 3-4 pages (15% each) 30% #1 by Jan. 30 (Wk 4) #2 by Mar. 27 (Wk 11) Proposal and Bibliography for Major 5% Feb. 6 (Wk 5) Written assignment (1-2 pages) Major Written Assignment (10 Pages) 35% April 3 (Wk 12) Graduates (EURR 5303) Assignments: Percentage Due Date Attendance and Participation 20% Oral Presentation 10% 3 Reading Analysis papers (4 pages) (10% each) 30% #1 by Jan 30 (Wk 4) #2 by Feb. 27 (Wk 7) #3 by Mar. 27 (Wk 11) Proposal and Bibliography for Major 5% Feb. 6 (Wk 5) Written assignment (1-2 pages) Major Written Assignment (12 pages) 35% April 3 (Wk 12) Note: Page lengths do not include notes and bibliography and assume 250 words/page. Attendance and Participation: This course is a reading intensive course (approximately 100-120 pages per week) held in seminar format. Active participation in classroom discussions is vital to students' success in the course. Students
4 are expected to attend class on a regular basis and to come to class prepared to discuss the assigned readings. Participation grades will be determined based on: (a) attendance and attention level and (b) active participation that (i) displays knowledge of the subject (ii) contributes to the flow of conversation (iii) shows knowledge of the readings (iv) offers critical analysis of the readings and subject. Questions or comments that display a thoughtful knowledge and analysis of the class readings receive the highest participation marks. Oral Presentation (grad only): Graduate students will give presentations of 10-15 minutes each that will offer comparative approaches to the issues of the week, drawing on the supplementary readings. The report may be related to your major assignment. History in Current Events Presentation (undergrad only): Undergraduate students will give a short 5 minute presentation on the role of history in current events. This presentation could take different forms, providing historical context to a current event, exploring the role of memory of past events in contemporary European society and/or politics, etc. Presentations may draw on particular national contexts or frame more universal European issues. Students may find the following sources useful in following current events in Europe: BBC Europe http://www.bbc.com/news/world/europe Deutsche Welle http://www.dw.com France 24 http://www.france24.com/en/ New York Times - Europe http://www.nytimes.com/pages/world/europe/index.html Eurozine aggregates cultural journals from across Europe http://www.eurozine.com Der Spiegel (international edition in English) http://www.spiegel.de/international/ Le Monde , Le Figaro and Le Monde diplomatique http://www.lemonde.fr ; http://www.lefigaro.fr ; http://www.monde-diplomatique.fr The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/world/eu Reading Analysis Papers: The reading analysis papers will analyze the readings for the week, discussing the authors’ arguments and pinpointing major issues within the selected theme. Students may submit papers before the class meeting in which readings will be discussed, but the papers will be due the week of class discussion. For graduate students, papers should not be done on weeks in which you are doing your oral presentation. Major Written Assignment: The major written assignment may take two forms: 1) Students may write a “traditional” research paper. This can be a paper that focuses in depth on an issue employing close analysis of primary sources and engaging with the secondary literature on the topic. 2) A second variant is to write a historiographic paper based on secondary sources that engages in a critical discussion of the current scholarship on a particular issues. Further details on the major written assignments will be discussed in class. Papers will be evaluated according to the following criteria: evidence of engagement with the literature in the field, quality and thoroughness of research, soundness of thesis, use of evidence to support thesis, coherence of argument, logical structure, writing style, grammar and spelling. We encourage students to consult with us while preparing their essays.
5 Submission of Coursework: All written assignments must be submitted using the electronic drop box in cuLearn. Unless a specific exception has been arranged, assignments sent per email will not be accepted. Comments and grades on assignments will be provided in the cuLearn grade book. Unless a medical (or equivalent) excuse is provided, late assignments will be penalized by two (2) percentage points per day (including weekends); assignments more than a week late will receive a mark of 0%. Our preferred citation format is Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style. Please use footnotes or endnotes rather than parenthetical citation. Assignments sent by fax to the Institute will not be accepted. It is not acceptable to hand in the same assignment (OR PARTS OF THE SAME ASSIGNMENT) for two or more courses. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: General: Laptops, tablets, and phones may only be used for taking/consulting notes, viewing course readings or for oral presentations. Other uses are distracting to everyone around you (and to you). If you don’t think you will be able to resist other uses, give pen and paper a try. You may be surprised! Email Communication: Following university policy, the instructors will communicate by e-mail with students using university “cmail” e-mail addresses. If you have a different account that you check regularly, please set up your Carleton account to forward to that one, so that you do not miss any important course-related announcements. Normally, the instructor expects to reply to e-mail or voicemail queries within 2 days during the working week. The instructor generally does not answer e-mail inquiries or voicemail messages on evenings or weekends. Students who wish to communicate with the instructor are encouraged to meet personally during office hours, at another convenient time by appointment, or at the end of class. Academic Integrity: Academic integrity is a core value of the university and essential for creating a constructive environment for teaching, learning, and research in Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies. Students are responsible for being aware of the University’s Academic Integrity Policy, understanding what constitutes academic dishonesty, and ensuring that all course assignments submitted for evaluation abide by University policy. Any suspected violations of the academic integrity policy will be referred to the Director and then to the appropriate Dean for further investigation. Students who are found to have violated the standards of academic integrity will be subject to sanctions. An overview of the University’s Academic Integrity Policy is available at http://www1.carleton.ca/studentaffairs/academicintegrity/ and the full policy at http://www1.carleton.ca/studentaffairs/ccms/wp-content/ccmsfiles/academic_integrity_policy.pdf Grading: • To obtain credit in a course, students must meet all the course requirements for attendance, term work, and examinations. • Standing in a course is determined by the course instructor subject to the approval of the Faculty Dean.
