Course summary

This degree focuses on modern history, starting from the nineteenth century all the way to the twenty-first century, paying particular attention to the themes of historical change and struggle.Its starting point is the present and it uses history to address the many crises and challenges of the contemporary world.Questioning traditional approaches to history, the degree adopts a unique teaching method. First, it draws from other disciplines such as politics and cultural studies in its exploration of historical themes. Second, it focuses not just on what happened but also on the mechanics of history as a discipline, its production, and its social and political uses.You will be taught in small seminar groups, where you will develop your ability to make persuasive arguments and participate in debates.
