Children of the Years of the Economic Recovery: Scholars born in the 1950s and 1960s in East or West Germany

March 4, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

This event is sponsored by the North Carolina German Studies Seminar and Workshop Series.

This event is part of the German Historians in North America After 1945: Transatlantic Careers and Scholarly Contributions workshop.

The workshop focuses on the impact of German historians, who emigrated to North America after the Second World War, and made their academic careers there. Through their bicultural experience, many offered inside views of their country of origin and translating them for their American colleagues and students, and influenced North American debates about Central European historical developments, while their ideas also reflected back upon historical discussions in Germany itself.
