HIS240 Nationalism and Identity in the 20th Century: Themes and Tensions


Though the concepts of ‘nation’ and ‘nationalism’ have been around since the late 18th century, the full impact of these ideas were not felt until the 20th, when the decline of imperial powers and rise of new philosophies (e.g. Communism) prompted revolutions, wars and the emergence of ethnic and religious separatist movements. Using lectures, flipped lectures and tutorial discussion groups, this course will explore the historical contexts and ramifications of 20th century nationalism, encompassing key issues and events (e.g. First and Second World Wars, fall of the Soviet Union) and prominent nationalist movements. Students will develop a layered and wide-reaching understanding of 20th century history that has on-going relevance today.
