Broadly designed around the notion of “Displaced Persons,” the course will focus on the representation of the European transnational experience and questions of cultural difference in 20th-century German literature and film. We will read and discuss poems, plays, novels, and essays by authors such as Joseph Berger, Bertolt Brecht, George Tabori, Emine Sevgi Özdamar, Yoko Tawada, Herta Müller, and Ghita Schwarz and watch and examine films by directors John Walter, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Fatih Akin and Margarethe von Trotta. A requirement for this class is the completion of a capstone project for the Transnational European Studies minor, the nature of which will be discussed during the first week of class. Taught in English.
