German Studies

The reunification of Germany and the creation of the European Union have been interpreted by many as sure signs that we were heading for a global world, which would demand of us that we act as post-national citizens. National narratives have resisted and challenged such a view, as is especially evident now in the context of the European currency crisis. Citizens of the various European nations hold fast to their national identities instead of making way for that new creation which Nietzsche called the good European. Germany’s new position of power within the European Union – celebrated by some, bemoaned by others – confirms that Germany’s historical significance will not remain confined to its tragic past: Germany is and will be a force to be reckoned with in the 21st century. As such, we believe that the relevance of German Studies has not vanished together with the last remnants of the Berlin Wall.
