Derrick Angermeier is presently a fourth year PhD candidate in the History Department of the University of Georgia. His master’s thesis, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Fritz, focused on the formation, reception, and implementation of National Socialist ideology in Germany from 1919 to 1939. His doctoral research, under the direction of Dr. John H. Morrow Jr, explores the conservative visions of the future held by ordinary people in Germany and the U.S. South during the 1920s and 1930s. in exchange for this desired future ordinary Germans and Southerners participated in political cultures that subjugated along gender lines and excluded along those of race. In looking at the commitment people had to their Zukunft, the troubling legacies left by the Jim Crow South and Nazi Germany become, instead of the sole actions of those in power, the price Germans and Southerners paid to pursue a vision of the future they both found very attractive.
