Konrad H. Jarausch, Lurcy Professor of European Civilization, UNC–Chapel Hill

Porsche's history is grounded in modernist design and had associations with welfare policies advocated by the Nazi government. With consideration of the  development of German postwar reconstruction, Professor Jarausch discusses the proliferation of sports cars during the “economic miracle.” The particular appeal of those vehicles during that era contributed to the ultimate success of the Porsche brand over others. Reception follows lecture.
