GERM 2226 Germany in Its European Context (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Hyphenated German writers are bi-lingual and bi-cultural. Famous examples include 2009 Nobel prize winner Herta Müller (Romanian )and Zafer Senocak and Fatih Akin (both Turkish). Questions of migration, identity, and otherness are typical topics in their texts and films. With every text in this course, students view Germany from a different perspective, a view from the outside in. In the end, the image of contemporary Germany will look quite original, quite different from the Germany depicted by "German Germans."
