Inhoud
Please note: This course is exclusively intended for students of the History track in English and for exchange students. It is not necessary to indicate a preference for a seminar group; the degree programme will assign you to a seminar group.

This course gives an historical overview of the period 1914 until now and emphasizes the political and international relations in this particular period. In addition, a number of historiographic issues are discussed. Although the geographical focus is on Western countries, the changing (power)relations with and in the rest of the world are also explored. Both World Wars, the Interbellum, the Cold War and the post-1989 period are studied extensively. Students also learn to place current events in a historical context.

The course consists of lectures and seminars that are in sync with the course’s textbook. The aim of the lectures is to give a broad outline within which the students study the course material. During the seminars, the students will collectively explore the historiography and analyse primary sources. There will also be discussions to stimulate students to form a well-founded opinion regarding the historiography. In addition, students will learn how to write a well-structured and grounded argument and to find and interpret primary sources. The students will also be introduced into theoretical frameworks.

Early Exit option (5 ECTS)
 
Exchange students who are required to return to their home university before January, are allowed to choose an Early Exit option for this course. The Early Exit option means that students can finish the course before Christmas break, receiving 5 ECTS for the course. Students must make arrangements with the course coordinator at the start of the course.
