Crisis and Continuity: German Culture and Society in the 20th Century
An interdisciplinary introduction to modern German culture, drawing on historical and literary texts, film, art and music. Using the German capital of Berlin as its focal point, this course investigates such themes as national identity, authoritarian traditions versus modern movements, the roles of women and minorities as they appear in both popular and "high" culture from the turn of the century to reunification. Taught in English; no knowledge of German necessary.
