German 390: The enlightenment
I took several German classes during the beginning of my college career. I was planning a double major in German, but I eventually realized that the only way for me to truly improve my German was to actually go to Germany and immerse myself in the language and culture. However, I am glad I dabbled around in German courses and ended up taking this course on the Age of Enlightenment in Europe. It stretched me to think in new ways about a topic which is so relevant to our lives, especially as a student seeking knowledge. The artifact I have included for this class is my final honors paper, which explores the contradictions that present themselves in various thoughts of the Enlightenment.
