CS: History of the Balkans: 1804-1923

This course will lead you through the political entanglements, Great Power conflicts, social particularities and rich cultural life that worked together to transform the peoples of the Balkan peninsula from subjects of the Ottoman Empire to independent countries and participants in European affairs. During the nineteenth century the developments in this area were both dynamic and traumatic for the inhabitants of these lands and tell a different story about modern European history than that told from the French, British, or German perspectives.

CS: THE BALKANS IN THE AGE OF NATIONALISM

This course is an introduction to the history of Southeastern Europe since the 1790s. Each week's work will examine a key episode in Balkan affairs through a combination of lectures, readings, and discussion of associated issues. The class will not follow the history of any one Balkan country comprehensively. Instead, we will direct our attention to relevant developments which address questions like these:

1. How does Balkan history relate to European history?

2. What is a nation, a nationality, an ethnic group?

3. What has nationalism meant for the Balkans?
