20th-Century Germany: Culture, Political Conflict, Gender, and National Identity
Keywords:Germany, Team teaching, Nazism, National identity, Gender, Interdisciplinarity
“20th-Century Germany: Culture, Political Conflict, Gender, and National Identity,” is an upper-level elective course that was collaboratively developed and is team-taught by a professor of German Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies and a professor of History at a regional comprehensive university enrolling 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Students majoring in History or minoring in Modern Languages and Literatures enroll in the course to meet one of their degree requirements. Non-majors take the course to meet the university’s International Studies requirement. Though the course has evolved substantially since we first offered it in the early 1990s, it remains true to our original aims: to provide a deeply interdisciplinary learning experience for students that dislodges their previous notions about German history and culture by emphasizing continuities across the World War II divide.
