CS: Cosmopolitanism and the Avant-garde, 1900-1939

This course will explore European cultural and intellectual history from the fin-de-siècle through the interwar years. The primary focus will be East-Central Europe, although there will be readings on Western Europe and the Russian empire/Soviet Union as well.

CS: Freud's Vienna

The history and culture of Vienna may be perceived as emblems of the history and culture of European civilization. One might even see Vienna as that civilization writ small and therefore intensified, its positive and negative characteristics somehow magnified because of that condensation. The center of the western civilized world from the baroque era on, it became the home of some of the greatest movements in music, architecture, art, literature and social and political upheaval as well as the center of the largest European empire in history.
