The UCSB program in Modern European History offers a comprehensive range of courses from the French Revolution to the present. Coverage includes major national histories - Britain, France, Germany and Russia/Soviet Union - and thematic courses with strong comparative and cultural dimensions. UCSB's Modern Europe program blends traditional and non-traditional approaches to political, cultural, social, diplomatic and economic history. Our emphases include the history of radical movements of the left and right (the Russian Revolution, fascism/Nazism, antisemitism and the Holocaust), gender studies, public policy, and war and society. The Modern Europe graduate program provides an integrated combination of reading and research seminars and preparation for university teaching. Modern Europe faculty are core members of thematic clusters in gender studies, the history of the Cold War, the history of science, and Jewish Studies. Members are also affiliated with Cold War Studies, Cultural Studies, Public History, the Southern California Russian History Program, Environmental Studies, and East Asian Languages.
