Despite being a political minority, how has the contemporary German right-wing achieved such widespread publicity?
More importantly, to what degree does this movement pose a threat to German democracy?
Students receive mentoring from their advisors, the Honors Program Director (who teaches the Thesis Workshop), librarians, and graduate students; they also form close working relationships and friendships with one another.
For these and other reasons, students in related majors such as Anthropology, Classics, International Studies, Jewish Studies, and European Studies, have participated in the program; any qualified student pursuing history-related research is welcome to apply.
Honors students in History define their own topics, work one-on-one with faculty mentors, and spend countless solitary hours conducting research, writing, and revising.
Specifically, it seeks to address how, if at all, these cultural representations of far-right ideology mirror the actual right-wing movement, and to what extent this movement may subvert established German democracy.
The Honors Thesis is a two-semester project conducted under faculty supervision, as follows: a seminar, directed research, or independent study course in the first semester, followed by HA195 in the second.
For specific details regarding the Honors Program, students should speak with a faculty undergraduate advisor and read the Guidelines for the Preparation of Theses below.
The culmination and highlight of the History Honors Program is the Honors Conference, held annually in April.
Students participate in panel presentations designed to showcase their projects and the work they have undertaken over the course of the year.
