    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Students will spend a portion of the week's hours reading and compiling an annotated reading list on a topic of their choosing, in the realm of modern German culture. Another portion of the hours will be spent helping to gather and digest sources, proof-read drafts, and digitize materials related to my specific project on the role of film in the transition from imperialism to democracy in Germany around 1918. If the students are employed for the full academic year, they will also write up and present the results of their own independent research project in spring and attend related presentations on campus or in Chicago with me throughout the year.
