FILM 42.17 Of Golems, Vampires, and Robots: The Haunted Screen of Weimar Cinema (in English)

Weimar Cinema prefigures the rise of the Third Reich, but it also reacts to the trauma of the lost War, and to the fear of changes brought on by modernity: secularization, industrialization, urbanization, the rise of the “new woman,” and changing forms of sexuality. In this course, we will meet the most famous of these uncanny cinematic creations and study them in the larger cultural and social context that marked the transition from the demise of the German Kaiser to the advent of the Führer.

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.
