Language of instruction

Period

Sem. 2A, Sem. 2B

Learning outcomes

Analysis and understanding of complex historical processes over time (including the analysis of shorter historical times in a long-term perspective) and in space (by linking the national history with the European and international ones), capturing the complexity and articulation of historical events, while being able to identify the most significant causal nodes.

Program

Europe and the United States in the history of the twentieth century

The course aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of the European history of the period 1900-1970 and of the history of political, diplomatic and cultural relations between Europe and the United States in the indicated period. There are two crucial steps to understand the evolution of these relationships in the first half of the twentieth century: the Great War and the Thirties that registrer the rise of two American presidents destined to play a central role in the world political scene as Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Particular attention will be devoted to the period between the two wars and to the birth and evolution of totalitarian regimes that is presented in a comparative and transnational perspective, from the point of view of 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 put in place in relation to the American world, to the history of fascism in a transnational perspective, to the phenomenon of intellectual and political exile, 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 after 1945, on the birth of a new world order and on the beginning of the cold war, on economic development in the Golden Age years of world capitalism.
At the end of the course the student must be able to reach a high level of knowledge on: a) the periodization of the historical phases considered, b) the events that characterize the historical events examined in the 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!
