Student Research Papers on Modern German History
Papers for UCSB Hist 133p Proseminar, 1999-2009
(course homepage)

This page links to research papers written by students in Professor Marcuse's Proseminar on German History in the 20th Century at UC Santa Barbara since 1999. For the assignment, see the course syllabus, and the 133p web publication guidelines.

I began experimenting with the publication of student work in 1999 (2 papers and 2 handouts) and 2002 (6 papers and 2 projects). With 10 papers in 2004 I began to do this more systematically, and continued to optimize the procedure with all 16 papers written for my 2009 course offering. In 2005 I also created an additional page to aggregate my Best Student Research Papers Online, including senior honors theses, independent study papers, and graduate student work.

Plagiarism Warning (back to top)

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.
