Course: History N174
Title: Topics in the History of Eastern Europe – The Contours of Coexistence: 'Otherness' and Belonging in Modern Europe
Dates: May 29 – July 7, 2017
Instructor: Sarah Cramsey, Ph.D
Units: 6 units
Once again, Europeans are questioning the limits of coexistence. Recently, we have watched a refugee crisis unfold and in the process have reopened discussions regarding who “belongs” in Europe. This course approaches these vexing questions from a unique historical perspective, that of coexistence and otherness in both the “old” and “new” Europe. Specifically, our laboratory includes Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany. We will utilize five case studies (the Jews of Europe; the Roma of Northern Bohemia; the Vietnamese in Prague, the Turkish in Germany and recent refugees across the EU) to better understand how ideas of “Europe” and “Europeaness” changed over the past century.
