Berlin provides a testing ground for;understanding how space shapes memory and;identity. Historic sites within the built;environment of Berlin mark historical upheaval;and reconciliation and the transformation of the;periphery into productive sites of commerce and;cultural exchange. Multiple historic and;contemporary sites will serve as a point of;departure to explore the emergence of;multidimensional identities in today's Europe. We;explore the history, design, function,;construction, and, in some cases, destruction, of;major historical sites in Berlin, such as the;Berlin Wall, the Reichstag, the Museum Island,;the Holocaust Memorial, and others through case;studies, archival research, and visual media.;Students have the option of creating media;projects and of drawing from other academic and;professional interests.
