HIEU 3502 - History of Central Europe

This lecture course will explore the 19th- and 20th-century history of Central Europe as both region and idea, tracing two stories in parallel: 1) the entangled history of Austrians, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Jews, Lithuanians, Poles, Slovaks, and Ukrainians; and 2) attempts by writers and scholars belonging to these groups (from Sigmund Freud to Milan Kundera) to “imagine” their own versions of a Europe caught between “East” and “West.”
