Course Description

War and Peace in Modern Europe

War and Peace in Modern Europe is a course run by Trinity College Dublin, Dublin. For more information about War and Peace in Modern Europe at Trinity College Dublin, please review the details below.

In this module, we discuss how Europe was defined and redefined through war, military occupation, civil conflicts, and peace agreements in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Drawing on examples of various – through often interrelated – conflicts, we discuss several major questions: How did international and civil conflicts shape European culture and
politics? Why was the twentieth century so violent? How did Europe become divided into “right” and “left,” and “East” and “West”? How are these conflicts and political extremes remembered or forgotten today? Comparing writings and films from across the continent, including Britain, Poland, Spain, Yugoslavia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Germany, we ask how the map of the continent has changed over the past century and whether it is possible to write a single history of Europe.

Lecturers: Dr Molly Pucci; Dr Patrick Houlihan.
