HIST 428: Fascist Europe, 1918-1945

Term: Spring Fall

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements: F8

Major Requirement: History of Europe
This seminar investigates one of the most tumultuous eras in European history by exploring the political and cultural development
known as “fascism.” Radicalized by World War and Depression, adherents of this new political philosophy gained control of several
European countries and transformed them from liberal democracies to totalitarian states. Concentrating on culture and society, we will
explore why and how such groups came to power in countries including Italy and Germany, what fascists believed, the elements of their
programs, and the legacies they left behind. (Course offered in alternate years.)
