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?

CS: The History of the Balkan Peoples, 1453-1918

The countries of the Balkan peninsula include Greece, Bulgaria, Albania, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Serbia, and Macedonia. Most of them share the long historical experience of belonging to the Ottoman empire. Between 1800 and 1878, many of them achieved independent statehood; since then, the struggle to consolidate and maintain independence has dominated their history. This course will consider the history of this region from 1453 to 1918, the period in which the region was dominated by the Ottoman empire.
