HSTY3803: British and Modern European History

The birth of modern Europe reshaped the world. This advanced seminar will examine aspects of politics, culture, economics and society in Europe, including Britain and Ireland, and relations between European countries, their empires and the wider world in times of conflict and fragile peace. As you investigate these vexed and interlinked histories, you will hone your research and analytic skills to understand connection, causality and the drivers of change.
