  • International History in the Twentieth Century" is intended for students writing 101 thesis on international, transnational, and comparative topics in the history of the twentieth century. Students will write on topics of their own devising, which may range from diplomacy, strategy, and statecraft to transnational economic, social, and cultural interactions of diverse kinds. Thesis writers may chose to focus on U.S. relations with the broader world, but they are by no means not required to do so. Given the seminar’s scope, we will not be undertaking topical readings as a class. Aside from a minimal introduction to research methods, in which the seminar group will participate, supervision will largely take the form of individual meetings with the instructor. Students interested in participating in “International History in the Twentieth Century” are strongly encouraged to schedule a meeting with Prof. Sargent during the fall of 2014 and to begin preparatory work, including archival research, during (if not before) the 2014/15 winter break.
