This course is a survey of modern German history. Since 1871, the changing territory called Germany has seen Imperial regency, fragile democracy, ironclad dictatorship, foreign occupation, the country¿s division and an unforeseen unifcation of the two German states into the Federal Republic of Germany which we find on maps today. Germany has caused and been devastated by two World Wars, going down in history for the most horrific crimes, the Holocaust. For almost 150 years, the so-called German question has occupied the brightest political and academic minds. Indeed, comprehending Germany may lay at the core of understanding recent European history. The course will cover the key issues that have shaped modern Germany and its impact on Europe and the world. It will combine social, political, and cultural histories. Among scholars and contemporary Germans alike, German history remains highly contested. The course will therefore introduce students to different approaches and interpretations of German history as well.
