We will discuss some of the major historical syntheses on twentieth-century Europe as well as more specific writings on wartime, interwar and postwar Europe that have appeared over the last decades. Particular emphasis will be placed on the tensions between national histories and trans-European trajectories. Weekly position papers and one historiographical essay constitute the principal writing assignments.
