Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course examines the expansion and rise of forms of human mobility in nineteenth-century Europe and its impact on social and political community. Thanks in part to new technologies, such as steamships and railroads, populations became more mobile. People moved to cities, traveled for seasonal work abroad, orsometimes emigrated permanently. At the same time, the growth of postal services, the telegraph, and the wider circulation of newspapers allowed communities to maintain more regular contact across greater distances. This increased in mobility also meant that European states and empires needed new methods to control and police their moving subjects. By examining the technologies and politics of mobility, this course examines ways that human movement remade European societies. In addition to primary sources, readings include secondary literature such as Jürgen Osterhammel’s The Transformation of the World, Wolfgang Schivelbusch’s Railway Journey, and Eileen Kane’s Russian Hajj
