HIST 3280 Study and Writing of History: Life and Death in the Bloodlands of the Eastern Front (Spring: 3 )
This course introduces students to the practice of history through intensive reading, research, and writing about the lives of ordinary people living "the Bloodlands," the areas of Eastern and Central Europe caught in cycles of violence during Hitler’s and Stalin’s rules. Through reading historians’ interpretations and primary source documents of soldiers, civilians, perpetrators, victims, and bystanders, students will develop an independent research project and produce a 25-page paper based on original research. Knowledge of German, Slavic, or other applicable languages beneficial but not required.
