Connections 20028. Germanies: History vs Culture

The three courses in this connection explore the historical reality and cultural concept of Germany from the sometimes compatible, sometimes contradictory, perspectives of history and German studies. GER 250 and GER 276 or GER 376 examine 20th century Germany through novels, films and other art forms. Topics in HIST 240 include the unification of Germany under Bismarck, Germany and World War I, Weimar culture, the rise of National Socialism, the Holocaust and World War II, the Wall, Berlin and reunification. Only one of the German courses counts towards fulfilling this connection.
