More Info

Germany is a totally unique country in the European community, without a period of Roman colonization, without a period of Medieval dynastic unification, without an early modern patriotic movement. It was created as a country even later than was Italy in the 19th century. Our 30-week course devotes the Fall quarter to the period before there were “Germans”, with Romans across the Rhine looking into the dark German forests, the period of Charlemagne, and of the beginning of the Holy Roman Empire. During the Winter quarter we explore the Reformation, the Renaissance, and early modern Germany.

During the Spring quarter we explore the rush to German unification led by Prussia and proceed to World War I, the rise of Hitler, and World War II.

William H. Fredlund, the Director of the Institute, obtained his B.A. and M.A. from UCLA, where he specialized in European history and art history. He studied in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship and completed a double Ph.D. in history and humanities at Stanford, specializing in Renaissance Italy. Dr. Fredlund has taught for UCLA, the University of Florence, Stanford, and UCSC Extension.
