Section Information for Fall 2021
This course is a survey of German history from the end of the Napoleonic Wars to the present. It covers Germany’s unification in 1871, European imperialism, the two World Wars, Nazism, the Holocaust, Communism, the Cold War, and today’s migration crises. Throughout the semester we will focus on how social, political, and cultural changes affected and were affected by outsiders—including ethnic and national minorities, German speakers living beyond Germany, the working classes, women, queer people, Jews, and people of color. In your writing assignments you will work on a research paper relating to a topic of your choice in modern German history.
