Content

This unit examines the major episodes, developments and figures of the interwar period (1919-1939) in Twentieth Century World history. At the same time it is intended to introduce students to the study of history and the Deakin history major. While this is developed as a discrete unit it is intended also to provide an introduction to the trimester two unit so that together, the trimester one and two of the first level will provide an extended survey of the twentieth century. In this unit students will investigate the causes, nature and impact of the major changes that emerged after World War One. Topics in this unit will include a study of the major political structures that emerged including popular democracy, fascism and communism, the major events such as the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, the Great Depression and the Origins of the Second World War, the major personalities such as Stalin, Hitler and Roosevelt and a selection of significant social and cultural developments which shaped everyday life in this period including the emergence of mass production, a consumer society, and technologically-based mass entertainment.
