Nazi Course Set for Germany in 2008

In May 2008, Dr. Molly Johnson will take UAH students to Germany as part of a course entitled "Munich, Nuremberg, Berlin: Legacies of the Third Reich." Participating students can get 3 hours of either History 399 or Global Studies 199 credit. The course will explore three cities integral to the history of Nazi Germany: Munich (the “capital of the movement”), Nuremberg (site of the Nazi Party rallies), and Berlin (official capital of the Third Reich). The course will begin during the spring semester with instruction at UAH and will end with a two-week trip to Germany in May.

The course has three objectives. First, while in Huntsville, students will learn about the rise and fall of Nazism in Germany. Second, while in Germany, students will analyze the “aestheticization of politics” in Nazi Germany by viewing Nazi architecture and visiting the sites of Party rallies and parades. Third, also while in Germany, students will examine how the cities of Munich, Nuremberg, and Berlin reflect the history of the Nazi period today, with particular focus on memorials and monuments.

If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Molly Johnson at johnsomw@uah.edu or the Global Studies Program at globalstudies@uah.edu.
There will also be an informational session on Friday October 19 at 1:00 p.m. in Roberts Hall 423 featuring free German desserts!
