Anotace - angličtina
The course consists of two autonomous yet synchronized parts. The structure of the both parts respects the chronological order. The first part of the course is taught by Kateřina Průšová (weeks 2-4). Her part of the course is an introduction into Central European history considering the region from diverse perspectives. The area is presented as a meeting point of diverse groups from Celtic settlement to Slaves. The course ends with the last Holy Roman Emperor. The second part of the course - taught by Miloš Brunclík (weeks 5-16) - will examine the developments of Central Europe in the context of European and world history since the 19th century. Besides the history this part of the course integrates three strands of political science: political theory (political philosophy), international relations and comparative (empirical) politics. Primary attention is given to the 20th century and to description and explanation of the most important events, processes and ideologies. The 20th century witnessed the struggle between liberal democracy and totalitarian or authoritarian movements. The course will interpret the ideological division of the world into the communist East and democratic capitalist West. We will inquiry into the roots of European integration as well as the causes and aftermath of the breakdown of communist regimes in Europe.

Cíl předmětu - angličtina

The aim of the course is to present key cultural, societal and political events and processes that shaped the fate of European states, including Czech lands, later Czechoslovakia and now Czech Republic, which have often been at the epicenter of European politics, though mostly as mere objects of great-power relations.

Over the course of the semester the students will become familiar with a number of various concepts that continue to be important and influential today and help understand current realities. Students will be able to understand these concepts and their various meanings, and analyze and interpret them in various contexts. Upon a successful completion of this course the student will have a good orientation in the historical context on European level. The student is led to think independently and interdisciplinary.
