(HIST 202) This course offers a broad survey of modern European history, from the end of the Thirty Years' War to the aftermath of World War II. Along with the consideration of major events and figures such as the French Revolution and Napoleon, attention will be paid to the experience of ordinary people in times of upheaval and transition. The period will thus be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. Textbook accounts will be accompanied by the study of exemplary works of art, literature, and cinema. This course was recorded in Fall 2008.

Thanks for put'n this class on itunesU! I rather enjoyed listening to all the lectures, I couldn't stop


As a student of history on my spare time, these lectures are extremely useful for me to gain a larger perspective of many different areas on which I have read. Please put up more if possible! I for one would appreciate them immensely.

Great History Lectures

I listen to many different history classes from Itunes U and this is one of the great ones. He has a depth of understanding and a great insight into the subject matter that has you sitting at the edge of your seat waiting to see what comes next and what he thinks of it. Some of my favorites were why no revolution in 1848 britain (I never thought of it that way), Napoleon (he's not a fan), and the one about Peter the Great (he really seems to admire him).
