HIST 3731 - Balkan dreams and nightmares: Southeastern Europe from 1908 to the Present


Focuses on the Balkans from the beginnings of the Ottoman Empire’s collapse to the present. We will examine the political, military, social and cultural history of the Balkans paying special attention to how the region’s people and states responded to the challenges of both World Wars, their brief interwar independence, their post-Second World War absorption into the United States and Soviet blocs. We will conclude by examining the collapse of Communism, the region’s post- 1989 transformation, and the sources and impact of Yugoslavia’s collapse and division as well as the efforts of other countries in the Balkans to take part in European integration.
