Section Information for Fall 2023

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 crisis. Throughout the semester we will focus on how social, political, and cultural changes affected and were affected by outsiders—often-marginalized groups including the working classes, women, queer people, Jews, and people of color. In your writing assignments you will be asked to imagine how ordinary Germans would have experienced the events they lived through, from wars to revolutions, and how they in turn might have shaped those events.
