Course Description:

This course investigates the phenomenon of regionalism and region-centred (as opposed to state-centred) thinking in 20th century European history. It will include a substantial theoretical component, as well as historical case studies of different European regions. NB! The focus will be on supra- and trans-state (i.e. encompassing several states or parts of several states), rather than on sub-state (i.e. a distinct area inside a state) regions.
