HIST 317Men and Women in Nazi Germany3.00
Engages one of the central debates about Nazism and Fascism: How "Modern" was Fascism? Was it a reactionary repudiation of all that modern society stood for - liberalism, democracy, equality, progress? Or was it instead another version of the revolutionary vision of the Modern? In examining this debate, the course takes as its central focus the issue of gender. Changes in the role afforded to men and women, and in beliefs about what it means to be male and female, were at the very center of the revolutionary changes that constituted the shift to the "Modern Era." Investigating how those kinds of gendered roles and beliefs played out in Germany during the crisis of the early 20th Century - from the excitement of High Modernity after the First World War to the attempt to realize a German version of fascism in the Third Reich - should tell us a great deal not only about the essence of fascism and Nazism, but also of Modernity itself. Through extensive reading, discussion, and writing, students will gain a much broader, more complex understanding of the idea of "modern society," of the nature of fascism as both ideology and state form, and of social ideas about masculinity and femininity, and how all of these interact with each other.

HIST 460The Holocaust in Modern Memory3.00
The Holocaust, which took place over half a century ago, has never been more present than it is today. From the United States to France to Germany, Poland, Russia and Bosnia, the incantation to “Never Forget!” exercises more power today than ever before; even more than in the immediate aftermath of the war. But why should that be true? Why is it that the memory of this particular event should have such power over generations so far removed in both time and space -- particularly when other episodes of genocidal violence, similar in scale and historical importance, play almost no role in our collective memories and consciousness? In part, this course brings to students a fuller appreciation of just what “the Holocaust” was; to understand precisely what the attempted genocide of European Jews, Roma, Poles, homosexuals, mentally ill, and others involved, and how and why it happened. While investigating those kinds of factual questions, however, the main focus is on the memory of the Holocaust as memory. Why is the Holocaust remembered? What is remembered, and what is forgotten? What are the ways in which the memories of the Holocaust are used by various societies, and how/why do they differ? Much reading and discussion focuses on different ways in which facts and memories of the Holocaust are used to draw meanings -- about Germany, about Jews, about mankind, about history -- and how those types of decisions can have profound consequences for the way a given society or group behaves and feels in the present.

Catalog Nbr.Course Title/Course TopicsCredits
POLS 100Introduction to Political Science3.00
Politics is often perceived as cynical and subsidiary from the normative interaction of society. But what is politics? What is the role of politics in society? What is the relationship between politics and government? To what extent does politics influence human relations and the ways in which government and its institutions function? The course will examine these questions by focusing on one topic each semester. Each of these topics--such as the concept of borders, citizenship, globalization, immigration, etc.--represents a central debate in politics, and introduces some of the current concerns in our world today.

POLS 101Introduction to Comparative Politics3.00
The recent history of Afghanistan has highlighted the complexities of national and state building. This course explores these two terms and what they mean. Is there a single universal definition and a singular path to modernity or are there multiple definitions and pathways to modernity? The first part of the course will examine the various theories of development with this question in mind. The second part of the course will focus on one developing country. By concentrating on their development pattern we draw out some lessons about tensions and contradictions that accompany development.

We particularly examine how we as individuals interact and help maintain the current global order with an understanding that we can change the current order for a better order in the future. The second part of the course examines various theories of how to understand the global order ranging from realism, liberalism, Marxism, to globalization, human security and feminism.
