HIST 001U. First-Year Seminar: Defining an “Us”: Nationalism, Culture and Identity in Modern Europe


This course examines how populations have come to see themselves as part of a single community. We will examine the emergence of cultural and national identities in Europe through thematic investigations of four of the ways such identities might be forged: land, language, symbols, and blood. By the end of the semester, students will have a wider vocabulary for analyzing nationalism, identity, citizenship, and political culture.
