HIST 364 - Europe: 1848–1918

(4)
In 1800, about 35% of the world was controlled by European powers; by 1914, Europe controlled 85%. This course tells that story and its implications for nearly everyone on the planet. Beginning with the widespread revolutions of 1848 and ending with WWI, this 70 year period in European history introduced ideologies and technologies which changed the world. The spread of socialism and communism, the development of feminism and trade unionism, and the emergence of global capitalism transformed people’s lives everywhere. See department chair.
