Learning objectives
To provide students with several tools to better understand the current state of Euro-American relations, the course will analyze the history of the political, economic and cultural relations between US and the European countries in the frame of the wider international developments of the XX century.
In particular, the course will explore the cooperation, competition and conflicts factors that have shaped the transatlantic relations since 1898 up to present days; it will be therefore devoted particular attention both to bilateral relations between US and the major European countries, and to relations between US and the European Community as part of the larger Atlantic Community.
Our methodological approach will privilege a critical examination of the most qualified trends in historiography and a rigorous analysis of the available primary sources, with the goal to make students able to apply acquired knowledge to the analysis of the complexity of the present world, also through the assignment of original research papers.
