"Dringliche Angelegenheit" Nr. 7, by Tom Baecker (www.a-point-of-view.de)
I am a historian of modern Europe (that is, Europe since ca. 1750), with subspecialties in the history of Germany, European women's history, and the history of the social sciences. My current research is focused on the history of economic thought in the 19th and 20th centuries, and the persistence of ideas from the German past in the way that the economy, state, and household are perceived today. I received my PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2006, and I have been teaching at the University of Minnesota, Morris, since August of 2005.
I teach courses on the history of Europe more broadly as well as on the national histories of Germany and France. More specialized courses include Women, Gender and Sexuality in Modern Europe, the History of the Household, the Enlightenment, Nazi Germany, and German Intellectual History.
