The Jewish Experience in German Literature and Culture
Credit Hours: 

The class will focus on writings in German by self-identified Jewish authors from about 1800 to the present. How did Jewish-German writers express their identity as Jews in German culture? Some of the key questions, we will consider are: What contributions did Jewish writers make to German, Austrian, and world culture?; Was there ever really a Jewish-German symbiosis?; How did Jewish-German authors portray traditional Jewish culture, particularly in the East?; How did Jewish-German authors respond to the Holocaust?; and How do writers and filmmakers express themselves in today’s culture? Taught in English.

Satisfies Core Area IV (World Languages and Culture) and the Franklin College Literature requirement.
