Assessment
and Goals:

Assessment:  Through 4 response papers (4-5 pages each), participation in class discussion, and occasional quizzes and exercises as needed (including a map quiz).
Goals: To teach students about the multiple problems associated with interpreting modern German history, particularly relative to National Socialism and its effect on how we view the German past; to help students place German history within the larger context of European history and understand how it is and is not exceptional; to call students' attention to the intersections of the historical record, individual and group memories, and understandings of modernity in how historians view Germany.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE IS INTENDED TO STRENGTHEN UMM'S OFFERINGS IN GERMAN HISTORY, WHICH ARE CURRENTLY LIMITED TO COURSES IN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY AND THE HISTORY OF THE NAZI PERIOD.  THE TEMPORAL FOCUS ALLOWS US TO CONSIDER THE "GERMAN QUESTION" IN DEPTH, NOT EXCLUDING INTELLECTUAL OR POLITICAL QUESTIONS COVERED IN THE EXISTING COURSES, BUT CONTEXTUALIZING THEM MORE DEEPLY IN THE OVERALL HISTORY OF GERMANY SINCE IT FIRST BECAME DEFINED AS A MODERN NATION-STATE.
