HIST 635: Problems in European History

HIST 635-DL1: Nazi Germany
(Fall 2021)

07:20 PM to 10:00 PM T


Section Information for Fall 2021

Although Adolf Hitler governed Germany for only twelve years, the Nazi state remains one of the most intensively studied regimes in modern history. In this seminar we will read historical scholarship about the Nazi era, examining the rise of National Socialism in the Weimar Republic, elements of Nazi rule, World War II, the Holocaust, and the aftereffects of Nazism in postwar Europe and the United States. Over the course of the semester, we will consider a number of core questions about the Nazi era, including what role the persecution of racial and social outsiders played in Nazi Germany, how one should classify the Nazi state in comparison to other dictatorships, and what the Nazi era can tell us about our world today. 

HIST 635 DL1 is a distance education section that meets synchronously. Students should expect to meet on the day and time scheduled.
