This course provides an examination of the Canadian military experience during the first part of the 20th century by focusing on central topics such as international relations, militarization and modern politics, and examining the most relevant works. The course offers an in-depth study of relevant historiography and debates regarding the Canadian participation to the two world wars. The aim is to focus on reading, discussing relevant work, writing a short essay and providing an oral presentation. This Übung is useful for students interested in Canadian studies with a particular focus on international and military history. Central questions will be how military interactions with other states shaped Canada’s political and social development, and what role and place have the Great War and the Second World War in Canadian history. Special attention will be dedicated to Canada’s evolving relationships with the United Kingdom and the United States. We will also look at Canada’s growing role in the international community as well as the development of the “Canadian nation” between 1914 and 1945. International, transnational and global aspects will be emphasized in this course. Students are encouraged to obtain a broader understanding of Canadian history. At the end of the course, participants should be capable of critically discussing the merits of different approaches and debates regarding the Canadian experience to global conflicts from 1914 to 1945.

Teaching, Discussion and Papers will be in English.
