Eastern Europe in Modern European History

A three-week seminar for sixteen school teachers focused on the place of Eastern Europe in modern European history.

This proposal is for a three-week Summer Seminar for School Teachers on the subject of Eastern Europe in modern European history, to take place at New York University (NYU) in New York City. The course will involve discussing modern European history, from the eighteenth century to the present, and focusing on the ways in which Eastern Europe is often left out of conventional presentations and narratives, while exploring the ways in which Eastern Europe might better be included, both intellectually and pedagogically. The purpose of the seminar will thus be to arrive at a more comprehensive conception of European history, East and West, one that reflects the Europe of today, with the expanded European Union of 27 countries (perhaps soon to be 28, pending Croatia), rather than the emphatically divided Europe of the Cold War period when Western Europe was always assumed to have priority over Eastern Europe, both in contemporary politics and in European history.
