This page links to 10 research papers written by students in Professor Marcuse's Proseminar on German History in the 20th Century at UC Santa Barbara during Spring Quarter 2004. For the assignment, see the course syllabus, and the 133p web publication guidelines.

See also my past attempts to publish student work in 1999 (2 papers and 2 handouts), and 2002 (6 papers and 2 projects). I am still experimenting to optimize the publishing of student research on-line.

Any student tempted to use one of these papers for an assignment in another course or school should be aware of the serious consequences for plagiarism.
Here is what I write in my syllabi:

Plagiarism—presenting someone else's work as your own, or deliberately failing to credit or attribute the work of others on whom you draw (including materials found on the web)—is a serious academic offense, punishable by dismissal from the university.
It hurts the one who commits it most of all, by cheating them out of an education.

Offenses will be reported to the appropriate university authorities for disciplinary action.

For more information, see this UCSB page on academic dishonesty.
