Haley Walton Follow. At the end of World War II, Germany faced some of the greatest levels of destruction of any country in Europe, leaving their historic cities and iconic architecture in ruin. Across the country, some monuments were restored with the upmost attention to detail, while others were maintained in a state of rubble for decades. Following the division of the state into West Germany a democratic republic and East Germany a socialist autocracy , most of the rebuilding took place against the backdrop of strong ideological differences. But the two new nations shared a centuries-long history, and, after rehabilitating basic infrastructure and housing, both were facing the questions of what they wanted their new cultural identity to be, and how existing buildings from a formerly united German architectural heritage fit into that vision. High esteem for the Gothic style should have been part of their shared artistic patrimony.

Alumna Emily Benjumea takes a defense selfie with her thesis committee: Drs. It brings up images of medieval soldiers standing their ground, swords drawn and shields raised, images of concrete walls and barbed wire. Images of Alabama linebackers in streaky eye black. Defending your thesis can be, dare we say it, fun. We recently sat down with history professor Laurence Hare to talk about the realities of the thesis defense. Plus, Professor Hare has served on more than 50 thesis committees, and has been thesis director for 24 students, both at the University of Arkansas and elsewhere.

As a history major with an anthropology minor, I felt like I had an entire world of potential topics at my fingertips. Overwhelmed was an understatement. My main historical interests include World War II, popular culture and media, the medieval period and religious history, which are all great areas, but I could only pick one — and then would have to narrow the field down even further to a specific topic. I heavily considered investigating World War II propaganda and its effects on the general populace, but something in me was always tugging my academic ventures back to medieval and religious history. I also wanted to use my Spanish minor in my research to further justify planning a semester abroad in Spain.
