Course description

This course aims at deconstructing national narratives in the field of historiography. Since its modern founding in the nineteenth century, history as a discipline has been an important site of nation-building. While the writing of national history in the nineteenth century is quite well explored, the entanglements between history writing, methodological innovation, the politics of nation, two world wars, the Cold War, the process of European unification, and globalization in the twentieth century still need detailed investigation.
The course is a so called BiP, Blended Intensive Program, which will consist of an onsite workshop and subsequent remote sessions.
