HISTORY 183A: Enlightenment and Genocide: Modern Europe and the Ottoman Empire

This course explores the deep connections between Modern Europe and the Ottoman Empire, and aims to use these connections to better understand what we mean by modernity, Islam, and the Enlightenment. How did the Enlightenment, with its calls for universal human rights and democracy, interact with revolution and dictatorship, and even with crimes against humanity such as the Armenian Genocide and the Jewish Holocaust? Why are these contrasts and contradictions important to us today? We inquire into ethical dilemmas from diverse perspectives, and investigate competing normative arguments to better understand the contested heritage of our modern world.
