Topics in History: German History in Documents

This seminar on modern German history focuses especially the period between the unification in 1871 and the reunification in 1990. At the same time, German history is contextualized as European history. The starting point for our discussions are documents: we will use primary sources to discover historical contexts in their social, cultural, political, or economic dimensions. This seminar is guided by the idea of discussing source analysis and source criticism–it is intended to introduce primary sources to jump-start work in historical perspective.
