Übung Neueste Geschichte: German History since the 20th Century. Challenges, Memory and Perspectives (only for incoming students)

Dr. phil. Pia Nordblom

Inhalt

This seminar will analyze the last hundred years of German history since the end of World War I from a historical perspective. Our main points of interest will be the unstable democracy during the Weimar Republic, the rise of national socialism and the Nazi rule, the years after WW II different until the division of Germany in two states and their developments in the time of the so-called Cold War. The fall of the Berlin wall and the reunification process will lead us to the interpretation of the “Berlin Republic”. Our course will include the discussion of recent challenges like growing nationalistic populism, environment matters, challenges of European and foreign relations and pandemic. We will focus on the perspectives of challenges and perspectives and the power of the past. Therefore, we are interested in historical alternatives that have not been realized. Our spectrum includes the broad spheres of politics, economy, culture and society. We will critically reflect different “national narratives” and examine positions of historiographic interpretations.
The course is designed to provide an introductory overview of German history since the 20th century for incoming students of all academic disciplines. Moreover, in this class advanced students will be guided in more specialized and source-based research.

The number of the ECTS (1-7 ECTS class + 3 ECTS tutorial/0 no tutorial) depends on the workload. Therefore, it can individually be adjusted according to the requirements of the sending university.
