Atlantic Crossing: exchanges and transfers of knowledge between Europe and United States in the twentieth century


The course aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of the European history of the period 1900-1980 and of the history of political, diplomatic and cultural relations between Europe and the United States in those years. There are three crucial steps to understand the evolution of these relationships in the first half of the twentieth century: The Great War and the Thirties which saw the rise of two American presidents destined to play a central role on the world political scene namely Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt and the phase that began after 1945 with the reconstruction of Europe and the beginning of the Cold War.
Particular attention will be devoted to the period between the two World Wars and to the birth and evolution of totalitarian regimes presented from a comparative and transnational perspective, covering political, cultural and intellectual history.
The central part of the course will be devoted to the analysis of the fundamental characteristics of totalitarian regimes, to the cultural and diplomatic relations with the American world, to the history of fascism from a transnational perspective, to the phenomenon of intellectual and political exile, and to the circulation of ideas between Europe and the United States in the interwar years. The last part of the course will focus on the evolution of political and diplomatic relations between Europe and United States after 1945, on the birth of a new world order and the beginning of the Cold War, and on economic development in the so-called Golden Age years of world capitalism.
By the end of the course the student must attain a high level of knowledge on: a) the periodization of the historical phases considered, b) the events that characterize the historical period considered, c) the different historical processes that totalitarianisms have generated, d) the historiographic interpretations related to these processes.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
