Germany's position in the middle of Europe is an important factor in shaping German attitudes to Europe, and always has been. This course aims to look behind the stereotypes about Germany to discover the regional variety within this economic powerhouse of 80 million people. A second focus will be on post-war history: how Germany arose from the material and moral catastrophe of the Second World War. As part of this section there will be a visit to the "House of the History of the Federal Republic" in Bonn.
Thirdly the course will discuss aspects like immigration, the environmental movement, the current reform process.
The course is limited to 30 participants.
