Nick Goodell

Nick is a 4th year PhD candidate studying modern German history. His dissertation, "Repression and Resistance: Communists in the First Concentration Camps, 1933-1935" analyses the early Communist resistance movement against Nazism with a sociological lens. The project examines how, why, and when people choose to resist, and the relationship of their participation in a resistance movement to strong state repression. In addition to his dissertation project, Nick studies European social history, labor history, and the global histories of both communism and socialism. For the 2023 - 2024 Academic Year, he will be conducting research for his dissertation in Germany as a dissertation fellow at the Freie Universität Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies.
