New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


JWST 53.01 Gender and Jewish-German Culture

In this class we will investigate different texts and representations of female experiences by Jewish authors from the Weimar Republic to the end of the 20th century.  The intersection of gender with Jewish German culture became one of the most important topics in cultural and literary research during the last decades. We will read and discuss lyrical and political, essayistic and autobiographical texts written by authors under extremely different political and historical circumstances; and we also will discuss theoretical and methodological problems in the field of Jewish German history and culture. Taught in English translation. Students taking the class for major or minor credit in German Studies will have the option to enroll in an additional German-language discussion section.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
