Online course brings legendary Professor George Mosse to a new audience - the University of Wisconsin

George Mosse was one of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's iconic professors: a pioneering historian with a gift for connecting the past to the present. Mosse was an authority on Nazism who himself fled the Nazi regime, writing influential works on fascism like "The Crisis of German Ideology" and "The Nationalization of the Masses." Students flocked to his UW classes from 1955 until his retirement in 1987, drawn by his charismatic style and his insights into European cultural history. Mosse died in 1999, but a unique online course from UW-Madison's Division of Continuing Studies is bringing his lectures to a new audience. From Oct. 5-31, What History Tells plans to recreate the exhilarating experience of sitting in Mosse's classroom.
