Course Description: This course offers a study of important American political, economic, and cultural programs in occupied Germany. It traces their interconnections, and situates them within public and political discourses on American responsibility and global leadership. Topics explored include the Denazification and Reeducation programs, the Marshall Plan, the Nuremberg Trial, and cultural programs such as the Amerika Häuser. Students examine questions including: what agenda guided all of those programs, how did they influence or contradict one another, and what can they tell us about American national self-perception after the Second World War. The emerging Cold War plays a significant role in this context. The course analyzes the influence of Soviet power on American discourses on political identity and discusses how the bipolar conflict influenced U.S. policies towards Germany.
