HIST 030. Glory Days? Western Europe's Postwar 1945-1975

Out of the ashes of World War II, Europe pulled itself up in thirty glorious years. But just how glorious were they? This class interrogates the three tumultuous decades from the Marshall Plan to the oil shock. Students will examine phenomena like European integration and decolonization, whose histories help illuminate Brexit and current migration debates. This course takes an in-depth look at a short time span, pushing beyond traditional mythologies about contemporary Western Europe.
