  • Ecrire une histoire par le bas de l’Europe occupée par les Nazis

Bio Sketch

Dr. Bergerson completed his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago focusing on modern German history. He served for one year as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Franklin & Marshall College before joining the UMKC history department in 1999.

An historian of everyday life, Bergerson’s research focuses on the historical impact of everyday ways of being, believing, and behaving.

Much of his research focuses on a longstanding research engagement in Hildesheim, a provincial town in Lower Saxony. His first book, Ordinary Germans in Extraordinary Times (2004) focused on the role of ordinary Hildesheimers in the Nazi revolution. A German translation is forthcoming in 2014 from Gerstenberg Verlag under the title : Entscheidung im Alltag.
His second book, The Happy Burden of History (coauthored with K. Scott Baker, Clancy Martin, and Steve Ostovich) appeared in 2011. It explored the meaning and possibilities for historical responsibility in light of examples and counterexamples from modern German life and letters.
In a new collaborative project, Dr. Bergerson and Leonard Schmieding, PhD, are leading a team of scholars, ATG26, to coauthor an integrative monograph entitled Ruptures in the Everyday : Views of Modern Germany from the Ground.
He is a lead investigator with Thomas Mundschick, PhD, in a new interdisciplinary, multimedia web project in the digital humanities, Trug und Schein : Ein Briefwechsel. And he is the new Book Review Editor for history and social science titles at the German Studies Review.
