HIST 3790 The First World War (non-US)
Professor Isabel Hull
This course examines the long-term and immediate political, social, and cultural causes of World War I, its catastrophic prosecution, and its revolutionary consequences. We examine the workings of the modern state, the diplomatic and military systems of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, mass mobilization, the development of mass violence and death, and the emergence of millenarian visions of the future. The course provides an in-depth introduction to 19th- and early 20th-century European international relations, diplomatic and military history.
