Lecture Series: Women in Nazi Society
April 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm JST
A lecture by Hayden Mueller
Part of the Spark Research Lecture Series
Hayden Mueller completed his Bachelor of Arts in German Studies and Theater & Dance at Trinity College, CT, his Master of Education in Advanced Teaching at the University of the People, and is currently pursuing his Master of Science in Instructional Design & Technology at the University of Missouri. His research focuses on civic and moral education in a digital world. His undergraduate thesis, “Das SS-Helferinnenkorps: Drei Phasen, Drei Frauen [the SS Women’s Communications Corps: Three Phases, Three Women],” was awarded the 2019 Booker Prize in German Studies at Trinity College.
In this month’s presentation, Hayden will discuss his research on the education and duties of the SS-Helferinnen, the only women to be admitted as officers in the Nazi Schutzstaffel, both to relieve male communications officers for service on the front and to serve as reproductive engines for the Thousand-Year Reich. He will also share how the process of archival research led him to a career in education. Hayden’s 45-minute lecture will be followed by 15 minutes of casual Q&A with lecture attendees.
