GERM 65.06 Modes of Belonging: What is Heimat

In the 21st century, Germany is de facto an "immigration country." That means that non-Germans have a chance of becoming German. But it hasn’t always been this way. The German understanding of belonging has a long and complicated history that spans several centuries. In our readings and viewings, which will range from Nazi films to memoirs of GDR-born writers, we will trace this history’s twentieth-century course. Our discussions will tackle the themes that cross boundaries: home, nostalgia, assimilation, cosmopolitanism, and patriotism. Senior majors will participate in a weekly culminating experience workshop focused on more intensive interpretation and analysis of works. Taught in German.



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:W

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.
