GERM 82.10 Of Spirit and Ghosts in German Literary Modernism

In German, Geist has many meanings, from mind, to spirit and ghost; it can even be an alcoholic beverage. All of them mean journeying into other, unknown realms. The seminar deals with the engagement of German writers at the beginning of the 20th century with occult practices, the medium of writing and its influence on literary modernism. The seminar also has a creative writing component, in the genuine sense of literature as a practice of transgressing into ghostly spheres.
