This course focuses on Sweden’s historical relationships to the Baltic region, Europe, and the U.S. We look at the Great Power Era, the poverty and mass emigration of the 19th century, the inter-war Middle Way, World War II, and, finally, the post-war era. With emphasis on post-1989 Sweden and Europe, we examine Sweden’s international profile and power, which influences Sweden’s national identity and future.
