Science in Nazi Germany
Students in this course will investigate a variety of ways that science operated in German Nazism by engaging with a selection of relevant primary and contextual secondary sources, beginning with the founding of the Nazi party, through the construction of the Nazi state, and including world war, genocide, and post-war lessons and legacies.
Students will compose written analyses of the assigned readings and participate in course discussions.
