Transcript Title: CULTR&POL NAZI ERA 
UC QTR Units - Division: 4.5 - Upper Division 
Course Description: The focus of this course is on the study of the entanglement of culture and politics during the twelve years between Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor and the end of the Nazi regime. The course takes a special interest on propaganda as a means of stabilizing the rule. Based on a joint analysis of the historical framework conditions that led to the rise of Hitler and the NSDAP, the course first deals with structures and institutions of National Socialism based on historical sources and scientific texts. Using concrete examples from film, literature, or architecture, it then examines the ways in which propaganda works. Countless novels, film, and television productions that deal with the most diverse aspects of the Nazi regime also testify to a comprehensive artistic review of the brown years. At the same time, studies suggest that concrete factual knowledge about National Socialism is declining. The seminar aims to counteract this and to provide the broadest possible overview of different facets of the topic of National Socialism.
