First Humanities Forum of the New Semester

We will have our first Forum of the new semester on January 26 at 2:00 p.m. in the College of Arts and Sciences conference room. Our featured guest will be Matt Berg from the History Department. He will be sharing a relatively short piece with us (so yes, you have time to read it). It is entitled: “Denunciation in the Service of Democracy: The Referat zur Liquidierung des Nazismus in Vienna, June 1945 – January 1946.” It is a fascinating look at the transformation of Austrian national identity, showing how Viennese citizens called out Nazi actors to the authorities, unexpectedly yielding a broader commitment to democratic processes as they did so.
