Roland Spickermann, Ph.D.

Dr. Spickermann is Associate Professor of History at the University of Texas Permian Basin, where he teaches courses ranging from modern Germany, modern Europe, and modern China to more thematic graduate courses on industrialization, democratization, and the Holocaust. A UC Berkeley graduate, he earned his PhD in German history at the University of Michigan in 1994. His doctorate concerned the interactions of state policy, ethnic rivalry, and political mobilization in an eastern frontier province of the German Empire. He is currently working on a quite different subject: a book on the history of adoption in 20th-century Germany. He is also the book review editor for Nationalities Papers, the journal of the Association for the Study of Nationalities, an organization specializing in the politics and history of Eastern Europe, the former Soviet sphere, and the Middle East.
