Origins of WWI and WWII in Europe


Seminar will examine major scholarly works from History and Political Science that address the same question, namely, how can we explain the origins of World War I and World War II in Europe? Consider how these two disciplines explain why the Cold War did not escalate to full-blown war. Will provide students with an opportunity to undertake a significant research project, with opportunities to use one or another of the two disciplines or to undertake some form of integration across the two fields.
