This course explores the ways that transnational perspectives have changed the way historians think of “European” history. It aims for a wide audience of
graduate students who expect to be responsible for teaching European history, without always being specialists in this field. The course will have a broadly
chronological structure, paying close attention to the following themes: the "Atlantic World," the Industrial Revolution, European imperialisms in the
"Democratic Age," European integration in the era of decolonization and the Cold War, and European integration after 1989.
