ANN: H-German Syllabus Contest (March 2015)

The H-German editors are pleased to announce the fourth biennial syllabus contest. Started in 2006, the contest has helped H-German create a syllabus database, and the current contest aims to expand the collection. We hope that this database will serve as a resource for new and more established scholars alike, whether in developing new courses or revamping older courses with different readings, films, and documents. (View the database here.)
