The seminar on the “Great War” does not only include military and political history, but also the broad field of economic and social history (war economy, demography, individual social classes, women, family, children and war, “the war experience” of a soldier, POWs, internees, deportees, “war experiences” of civilians, domestic front, everyday life, health care, military law and war crimes), cultural history and history of ideas (religion/church and war, mentalities, public opinion, newspapers, film, war mail, censorship, intelligence, education/school and science, propaganda, stereotypes, myths, fiction, art and war, memorial culture: monuments, war cemeteries, museums, memorials). From this broad spectrum each semester a different, narrower topic area is selected in cooperation with the students.
