What did the German Kaiserreich Do for Us? Questions to a New Nation (1870-1914) (MLG3039)

15 credits

1870/71 saw the birth of a new nation state in the middle of Europe. How would this new Germany define itself and adapt to rapid change? What would the neighbouring states think of the new situation? If you want to understand the roots of Germany today, you need to find answers to these questions. We will research the specifics of the Kaiserreich in a series of debates, combining introductory overviews (by the module leader) with specific presentations on chosen aspects (by you). We then will test the hypotheses by analysing documents and feeding the results into a topical debate.
