Program Overview

Program Description:

The Master’s program in Central European History explores comparative themes in the history of Central, Southeastern and Eastern Europe within a wider European context. While the program is loosely arranged into “early-modern” (1500–1789), “modern” (1789–1914) and “contemporary” (post-1914) specializations, there is an increasing endeavor to transcend chronological boundaries, as well as to range freely among sub-disciplines. Particular themes include: patterns of social development; cultural history and everyday life from the Reformation through the Enlightenment to modernity; problems of modernization (backwardness and unequal development); modern ideologies; empires and imperial structures; nationhood and the nation-state; and varieties of authoritarianism such as fascism and communism and their historical legacies and memory.
