nationalism, imperialism and democratization after 1750.

The themes covered in the course can be taken from different time periods and from different geographical locations in Europe or elsewhere, but a recurring feature of the course is that the themes will be examined from a number of different perspectives or through different historiographical lenses.

The course will provide students with solid foundations in theoretical and methodical questions connected to the themes that are taught.

The themes that will be offered in the course will change from year to year, depending on who is teaching the course. The themes offered will normally be decided depending on the research interests of the lecturers involved in the course.
