Oct 29 - American Understanding of Nazism - A Sense of Belonging

Dr. Michaela Hoenicke MooreDr. Michaela Hoenicke Moore is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Iowa. Today she gave us two conferences regarding the political and intellectual context of American popular and official conceptions of Nazi Germany. The first conference, “How Americans Understood Nazism and Why it Matters”, was a national level view of how Americans perceived and responded to the Nazi regime and the corresponding view of the German people relative to the Nazis. The second conference, “A Sense of Belonging: Citizenship and Political Commitments of Three German-American Women”, was a more personal level consideration of the morning conference through case studies of particular individuals and their decisions and activities before, during, and after World War II.

Dr. Hoenicke Moore received her PhD from the University of North Carolina in 1998. Before joining University of Iowa History department in 2008, she taught US history at the Kennedy Institute of the Free University in Berlin and York University in Toronto, as well as transatlantic history as a DAAD visiting professor at the University of North Carolina. Between 1999 and 2001 she worked as a senior fellow in US Foreign Policy at the German Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin. She currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the history of US foreign policy, transnational history, international relations and history and theory.

After solemn profession and throughout their lives, the brothers continue to learn "the philosophy of Christ". Continuing formation is to be made available to the whole community … based on the Rule of Saint Benedict and the Cistercian patrimony and is to draw from the riches of biblical, patristic, liturgical, theological and spiritual sciences.
