Program Summary & Location

This four-week travel seminar offers a hands-on understanding of the history and culture of Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, and Poland.  Central Europe has a complex history that includes the creation of multi-national empires, the formation of new nation-states after WWI, Groupthe rise and dominance of Nazism and Soviet Communism, the divisions of the Cold War, and the peaceful grass-roots revolutions of 1989 that brought down the Berlin Wall. The architecture and art of the region has been shaped by leading local figures of important cultural movements from Romanticism to Post-Modernism. From the Renaissance to the "Roaring Twenties," Krakow, Vienna and Berlin emerged as European cultural capitals.
The ethnic and religious history of the region is rich, complex and filled with both impressive examples of multicultural coexistence and tragic histories of persecution and genocide. The program will explore what has made the history of this region unique, impressive and sometimes tragic. It will pay particular attention to the recent developments of the late 20th Century: the fall of communism, the post-communist experience, and post-war immigration.
