HIST 264 - Modern European History through the Novel


Introduces the intellectual and political history of Europe through the novel.  Reading the masterworks of European fiction, students will explore some of the most contentious issues in modern European thought, and develop aunique perspective on imaginative literature as an indispensable source of our knowledge about the past.  Course approaches the modern novel as a sensitive register of a culture’s moral and social climate, and the locus of the modern struggle to reconcile public responsibility and personal desire. 
Former title: European Mind: History and Theory

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered biannually
