GER-E 121 AN INTRO TO GERMAN CULTURE (8400)

Instructor: Weiner, Marc A.
Day & Time: TR 9:30 AM- 10:45 AM

No knowledge of German, music theory, or the ability to read music is required for this course. If there's one thing people think of when they think of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (aside from the Oktoberfest, the Disney-like castle Neuschwanstein, and the best chocolate cake anywhere), it¿s the prominent role music has played in those foreign countries¿ culture. It¿s a cliché that the pomp and elegance of the German and Austrian aristocracy were accompanied by works of the greatest composers in history, but it's also true that classical music continues to play a role in these countries quite unlike anything found elsewhere. It's no coincidence that Germany alone still has over eighty opera houses that are, for the most part, state funded, and that their performances remain well attended and are often sold out well ahead of time. The symphony orchestra holds equal prominence in the culture of German-speaking Europe, and there the public enjoyment of chamber music - from string quartets to the art song, or Lied - is more widespread and active than anywhere else in the world. The goal of this course will be to examine in what ways the most celebrated musical works of the past 200 years demonstrate the close connection between the interests of their time and the aesthetic material of which they are made. We will engage with a number of the most famous examples of German and Austrian classical music from the late 18th century to the 1930s, and will discuss them within their given cultural context. In addition to analyzing some of the major works of (in this order) Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Richard Strauss, Weill, and others, we will also read some of these composers¿ fiction and essays, as well as a 19th-century novella depicting the life of a failed musician, examine various (and often competing) approaches to critical interpretation (biographical, psychoanalytical, symbolic-epistemological, historicist, modernist vs. postmodernist, and feminist), discuss current debates concerning how one may legitimately make arguments about a given culture based on analysis of a given piece of music, and we will also examine the various assumptions at stake in the staging and performance practices of different times. Our investigations will include examinations of opera, music drama, symphony, art song, and jazz. The only prerequisite is a willingness to participate actively in a dialog with the group and the instructor on the texts and the cultural issues against which they can be read (in other words, there will be no credit for attendance alone, only for participation). There will be one Midterm Exam. In the final weeks of the course, preceding exam week, students will participate in group presentations in which they describe an independent research project, the subject of which will have been agreed upon by the students and the instructor no later than three weeks beforehand. On the date of the presentations, students will submit an outline and critical bibliography of works consulted. Your presence and participation in discussions are an important part of the dynamic of the class. A student may have up to two (2) unexcused absences; every absence thereafter (without the proper documentation from a doctor or senior academic advisor) will lower the final grade by 1/3 (e.g., for three unexcused absences, a grade of "A-" would be lowered to "B+," for four unexcused absences "A-" would be lowered to "B," etc.). Nonetheless, credit is not given for attendance alone, but solely for participation. All texts will be read in English translation. No knowledge of German, music theory, or the ability to read music is required for this course. This course fulfills the IUB GenEd World Culture credit, CASE A&H Breadth of Inquiry credit, and CASE Global Civ & Culture credit. Grades will be computed as follows: Participation = 50% Midterm: 25% Group Presentation = 25%. Required Texts Grillparz

When was the last time you saw a play? While most of us tend to watch films quite frequently, we often don't pay much attention to what's going on in terms of theatrical performances. Why is that? What is considered a play and who is involved in its production? What, if anything, is so special about German-speaking theater? How does theater reflect cultural history? And how are plays in the German-speaking world different from those in the U.S. historically and today? In this course, we'll ponder these questions and attempt to find answers by delving into the rich history of theater in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. We'll read well-known and lesser-known plays from different time periods, as well as critical essays on theater, acting, and directing. Throughout the semester, we will engage with texts in analytical and creative ways and visit the performance of a play. Required materials (available at the IU bookstore): Brecht, Bertolt.

Topic: Fairy Tales in Old and New Clothing Fairy tales are a part of every culture. They can be defined as traditional stories written for children, involving imaginary creatures and magic, usually having a happy ending. At first glance this seems to be true, especially when we consider well-known fairy tales by the Grimm Brothers, like Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, or Cinderella. However, not all fairy tales feature magical beings, not all end happily ever after. And even though they are intended for children nowadays, their fascination often extends into adulthood. The German writer Cornelia Funke has captured the imagination of a wide audience with her Reckless trilogy that weaves into a fantastical framework a darker side of fairy tales. We will investigate the main fairy tales in the first book of her trilogy, and examine read lesser-known tales by the Grimm Brothers, Ludwig Bechstein, Wilhelm Hauff, and Hans Christian Andersen. Required readings Cornelia Funke (2011): Reckless (Series: Mirrorworld). New York and Boston: Little Brown and Company.

Topic: German Miracles: Love, Beauty, Wealth, and Philosophy What is a miracle? Is there any place for the miraculous in scientific modernity? In this course, we examine what German literature and philosophy have to say about the marvelous and sublime event. Germany has had more than its share of miracles, some of them wonderful, others apocalyptic. We explore German miracles big and small. Religious miracles recorded ecstatically in books of signs. Scientific breakthroughs so unexpected they appear otherworldly. Artistic experiences so violent they seem supernatural. Fairy tales so dumbfounding it seems like dreams and reality have switched places. Good luck so exceptional that is seems to be evidence of a blessing. Poverty so devastating to move the heart of the god of mercy. Revolutions whose legacy can mean only miracle or catastrophe. Love so transformative that the erotic and divine become one.

Topic: Dutch footprints Taught in English; no prerequisites. Course open to graduates and undergraduates. In which respects is the Netherlands comparable to other countries, in which respects are the differences impossible to miss? And what are the reasons for these similarities and dissimilarities? How is the Netherlands connected to other countries, today and in the past? In this course, we will try to find answers to those questions, and for that reason we have to start in the past. So, we will start at the beginning of the 16th century and we will find out what happened to the Dutch and their endeavors in the world. We will discuss the Dutch Republic and what set them apart in Europe of that time, but we will move fast to the Dutch in Japan, Indonesia, and other places in the Far East. Several different texts will be analyzed and discussed, from scholarly works about the Dutch East India Company, travel diaries to literary texts. All literature will be read in translation and the course will be conducted in English. Grading will entail: weekly homework assignments, a couple of response papers and a final. Required texts: Reader

Topic: The Fantastical, the Uncanny, the Weird in Writing and Film On good days, we are competent operators in a rational and transparent world. On bad days, we whisper threats at our computers, kick our cars, and negotiate with higher powers for a parking space. We can label this behavior delusional and be done with it. In this course, we will try to understand it better by examining literature and film that open us to a dimension that is neither fully rational nor fully pathological, what has been called the fantastical, the uncanny, and the weird. What do these artworks reveal to us about the world? And what about ourselves? All readings and discussions in English. Sigmund Freud, The Uncanny (Penguin Classics, ISBN: 978-0142437476). E. T. A.

This course is an introduction to some high points in the tradition of German thought. It approaches this heritage not by reconstructing one system of thinking or another, but through a series of flashes in the darkness of common sense. Our aim is not only to grasp different thoughts, with their striking originality and power, but also to grasp a style of thinking, a way of being receptive to surprise, an openness to the possibility that the world is other than we had taken it for. This means, among other things, that we will think in a way that is neither common sense nor science, neither familiar experience nor deduction. Rather, the thinking we aspire to¿as exemplified in these masterpieces¿is adventurous, strategic, risky, and exhilarating. Our exploration of these flashes of insight begins with Martin Luther¿s translation of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible. We proceed through some amazing passages in the German intellectual tradition, reading works by Kant, Hegel, Heine, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Weber, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Benjamin, Arendt. We learn key terms these thinkers have used to make the world visible to us: good and evil, argument and revelation, virtue and vice, norm and exception, reason and myth, abstract and concrete, ideal and material, identity and difference. And we inquire into topics such as whether the existence of god can be proved, whether political virtue belongs to some of us or all of us, whether sexual desire can explain self-discipline, and whether work can redeem us either here in our lives or only in the beyond.

Topic: Kleist and Kafka We devote the semester to an intensive study of two of the strangest, most imaginative, and most unsettling writers in German (as well as in modern European literature generally). There are vast differences between Heinrich von Kleist (1777 - 1811) and Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924), yet there is also a lot that links them. Both were seen as key literary figures only long after their death; both are among the most exquisite stylists of the German language; and both wrote themselves to the very edge of destruction. Their writings show the world the way you have not seen it before. We will read a selection of their works closely, focusing on their prose. All reading and discussions in German. Heinrich von Kleist, Sämtliche Erzählungen und andere Prosa (Reclam, ISBN-13: 978-3150082324). Franz Kafka, Die Erzählungen (Fischer, ISBN-13: 978-3596132706).

*This section meets with GER-N100 Prerequisite: This course presupposes no prior knowledge of Dutch. It is possible to attend N401/N100 as a first foreign language course. N100/N401 is a first semester language course that develops basic skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The goals to be reached by the end of the first semester of Dutch are good pronunciation, elementary grammar, a reasonable conversational fluency, and an ability to read not too complicated texts. We move fairly rapidly through elementary grammar and pronunciation, and concentrate on conversation from the beginning. Audio-recordings and video material will be used on a regular basis in order to improve listening comprehension and pronunciation skills. Homework is designed to reinforce vocabulary, reading and writing skills, aural comprehension, and the understanding of grammar. Grading will entail: weekly quizzes, a midterm, a presentation on a Dutch subject (in English), several essays, two oral examinations and a final. Class participation is a requirement for successful completion of the course; therefore it also covers a solid part of the grade. Required Texts: 1 E.Ham et al., Help! 1 Kunt u mij helpen?
