Analyse The History of France From 1789 to 1945
In the course we are looking at European history from 1789 to 1945 through the lens of the question of nationalism (how it is defined, how accurate those definitions are, how well those definitions explain historical events, and what other frameworks, such as class, compete with the national frame). Each of you is further narrowing this focus by looking particularly at one nation. Through this chosen case study you are applying the course generalizations to a specific place and examining its applicability and value to explain your chosen nation’s historical experience.
