Topic: Germany: An Imagined Nation An Introduction to German Culture Germany is an unsettled nation, and not only because it continues to be haunted by its recent history. The nation has existed for barely 150 years, yet even in that short span it has not always managed to remain a unified whole. Over time, the territory of the German lands has slid all over the map of Europe, now stretching, now contracting. What we now call Germany has mostly lacked a stable political order and a firm center of power. This fragile political entity has relied on cultural achievements¿on language, literature, art, and customs¿to assure itself of its national identity. By examining significant objects drawn from various parts of life, the course considers how culture both shores up the sense of a nation and undermines it. What do the Luther¿s translation of the Bible, the national anthem, the German national soccer team, a bank note from the 1920s, and an inscription on the gate of a Nazi concentration camp reveal about the deep link of culture and history in Germany? All readings and discussions in English. Books: Neil MacGregor, Germany: Memories of a Nation (Knopf, ISBN-13: 9781101875667).

This course focuses on the rich theater culture in German speaking countries. According to the German Ministry of Education and Research, there are around 700 state, municipal and independent theaters, plus opera houses, dance companies, touring groups, improvisational and puppet theaters in Germany. And these venues are not only located in the big cities like Berlin and Munich¿you can find a theater in almost any small city all throughout Germany. Why is that? And why is theater still such an important part of people¿s lives today? Throughout the course of the semester we will try to find answers to these questions by exploring the connections between the history of theater in Germany and its historical and cultural relevance. We will look at how theater has influenced and criticized political movements and social injustice and learn how theater can reflect a nation¿s cultural history. We will read plays by famous playwrights such as G.E. Lessing, Frank Wedekind, and Bertolt Brecht, as well as critical essays on theater history and culture. We will learn about cities like Berlin and Vienna and investigate what theater culture looks like in these cities today, what it is that makes theater so special, and who the directors are that are celebrated by their fans like rock stars. We will also look at connections between German theater and film and see how, for example, the Expressionist movement in German theater following World War I had a significant impact on film techniques in Germany and abroad. Course goals By the end of this course you¿ll have read and examined various plays as well as critical essays. You will have developed an understanding of the historical circumstances the plays were written and produced in and discovered potential similarities and differences of the American and the German stage. You will have become familiar not just with plays, but also with aspects of filmic adaptations, radio plays, and the various aspects involved in producing a play. Finally, you will have engaged with texts in analytical and creative ways and developed an appreciation for German culture that reaches beyond Oktoberfest and soccer :-). Required materials 1.

Topic: Fairy Tales in Old and New Clothing Fairy tales are as old as the world and continue to be present in all cultures today. Tales of magic, love, adventure, enchanted forests, witches, and beasts draw in young and old. But, what is it that fascinates us about these stories? What makes a tale a fairy tale? And what if it does not end happily ever after? This course will explore the complexities of the genre, its traditions, variations, and history by looking at fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, Wilhelm Hauff, Ludwig Bechstein, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen. Moreover, we will read the recent novel Reckless by Cornelia Funke who in her bestselling book series gives voice to the dark side of fairy tales.

Topic: Intro to Structure of Germanic Languages (Ger-E336 satisfies the N&M Distribution Requirement) This course provides students with an introduction to the linguistic structure of Germanic languages. It is meant to be accessible to students with no specific background in general linguistics and does not require knowledge of a particular Germanic language (other than English). The course consists of two parts: Part I investigates the structure of sounds (phonetics/phonology) and the structure of words (morphology) in Germanic languages. Part II considers the history of the Germanic languages, especially with respect to phonetics/phonology and morphology. The course pursues two goals: (1) to introduce students to the main structural and historical aspects of the Germanic languages, and (2) to introduce students to techniques for describing and analyzing these aspects of language, as commonly practiced by Germanic linguists. The course material will be in the form of extensive handouts. There are no required readings.

Topic: The Dutch-America connection Taught in English; no prerequisites. Course open to graduates and undergraduates. When the British wrested New Amsterdam from the Dutch in 1664, the truth about its thriving, polyglot society began to disappear into myths about an island purchased for 24 dollars and a cartoonish peg-legged governor. The Dutch colony pre-dated the ¿original¿ thirteen colonies, yet it seems strikingly familiar. Its capital was cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic, and its citizens valued free trade, individual rights, and religious freedom. That is the way how the Dutch-American link started. In the first part of the course, we will briefly look at The Netherlands, from the Middle Ages until the rise of the so-called Dutch Republic at the end of the 15th century; the mentality of the Dutch and their view on the world. In the second part of this course, we will find out what happened to the Dutch colony at this side of the ocean and how the relationship between the two countries developed until now. Grading will entail: several writing assignments, a (midterm) quiz, 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 text: * Russell Shorto, The island at the center of the world, Vintage books, 2005, ISBN 9781400078677 * further readings will be posted on Canvas

Topic: Event, Trauma, Non-Events: From Novellas to the Fall of the Berlin Wall COLL (CASE) A&H Breadth of Inquiry credit What is an event? Why do we celebrate or fear events so much? Why are we bored without events? Do we actually have many events in our lives or do we just enjoy them in movies and fiction? How do we fictionalize our lives? The course has three parts: 1) reading German novellas; 2) considering contemporary issues that are described as events (such as the fall of the Berlin Wall); and 3) reflections about our lives today (are we living a life of events or not?) The starting point of this course are German novellas from the 19th to the 21st century that each harbor an "unheard of event" (to use a formulation by Goethe). Some of these events are traumatic, some of them are shocking or scandalous, others are happy or magical, but they all make great reads. They also will not be too long. We will discuss the specific events of the story, but also general questions about "eventfulness" in novellas and will read some theories of events and also trauma. In the second part, we will use these readings and critical insights to evaluate contemporary "events" and ask: Are they events or are they just presented as events? In which way was the Fall of the Berlin Wall an event? In which way was "9/11" an event? How do the internet and social media change what we understand to be an event? And yes, we will discuss Good Bye Lenin and Lola Rennt. In the third part of the course, we will look at life stories and autobiography. We will examine to which degree our own lives are structured by events and to which degree this is not the case. In general, we will ask to which degree life is fictionalized. You will have the option to reflect about your own life here. The course is in German, and we will do our very best to include all different abilities of German speaking and reading. The texts exist in English translations (and I encourage reading both the German and English version, but the German first). Readings will not be long, typically 15-35 pages per week (in German). I will indicate the main pages before. It is my goal to make you comfortable speaking and working in German, but we will also seek ways to include complex ideas that you feel you cannot yet express in German. Your grades will be mostly independent from your language levels. Book Orders (all very cheap): 1) Kleist, Marquise von O (Reclam) ISBN-13: 9783150191279 2) E.T.A.

Topic: Franz Kafka Dieser Kurs behandelt Franz Kafka, einen der bedeutendsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts, und zwar nicht nur in Europa, sondern auf der ganzen Welt. Als Jude und deutschsprachiger Autor in der Österreichisch-Ungarischen Monarchie fühlte Kafka sich stets als Außenseiter, eine Empfindung, die sich in seinen Briefen, Tagebucheintragungen und einigen seiner Erzählfiguren widerspiegelt. Die nachfolgende Entwicklung der Weltliteratur wäre ohne Kafkas Einfluss undenkbar. Der Grund liegt zum einen in seinem einzigartigen Schreibstil, zum anderen in seinem scharfen Verständnis der menschlichen Tiefenpsychologie. Wir werden im Verlauf des Semesters die Hauptwerke von Kafkas Oeuvre vor ihren biographischen und historischen Hintergründen untersuchen. Studenten halten kurze Referate über einzelne Stücke von Kafka, und in den letzten zwei Wochen des Semesters werden kurze Vorträge über Kafka, sein Leben und seine Werke gegeben. Alle Referate werden auf Deutsch gehalten und alle schriftlichen Arbeiten auf Deutsch verfasst. Required Texts: Kafka, Franz. Brief an den Vater/Das Urteil. Textausgabe mit Kommentar und Materialien. Stuttgart: Reclam, Philipp, jun. GmbH, Verlag (2018). ISBN-13: 9783150194034. -----. Der Process. Stuttgart: Reclam, Philipp, jun. GmbH, Verlag (1998). ISBN-13: 9783150096765. -----. Erzahlungen.

Topic: Immigration and the Literary Imagination Everyone knows that the first wave of economic migrants, the so-called "guest workers," were brought to Germany to help build cars and make steel. Yet something unexpected happened too: they and their descendants have refashioned German literature, in fact the German language itself. This began with the Turkish migrants of the 1960s and 1970s. By now, German literature is nourished by creative currents from all over the world: from Russia, Syria, Poland, Rumania, Iran, Ghana, Japan, among many other places. Sometimes the contributions of immigrants are well received and lauded. Yet they also meet resistance from some quarters. How have immigrants changed and renewed German literature? What traces have they left in the language? We will read a wide range of material, and students will do their own research into the topic. Readings and discussion in German.

Topic: "In English, bitte?!" - German Culture and Society through Translation After learning a foreign language, translation automatically becomes part of our lives. But how does translation actually work? How can translation help me learn German? In this course we will have the opportunity to gain linguistic and professional experience by practicing translating from German into English in various genres and contexts such as news articles, fairy tales, graphic novels, and cartoons.

*This section meets with graduate course GER-K504. K250 is a fourth semester language course, which will continue to build on your existing knowledge of Norwegian, strengthening and expanding the language tools you already possess to make you able to move beyond the everyday topics and into more specialized areas of conversation. We will focus on your ability to narrate and describe in Norwegian, as well as to construct well-rounded paragraphs. Topics of discussion will include Norwegian geography, history, society, folk narrative, school-system, food and leisure. We will use mainly authentic cultural materials. You will be required to do all the readings at home. Class time will be devoted exclusively to conversation/discussion and going over specific grammar topics and exercises. Every third week there will be a test on vocabulary and/or grammar. Weekly essays will also be required. There will be no final exam, but a final written group project with accompanying oral presentations. Books: Required books: A. Ellingsen, Elisabeth og Kirsti Mac Donald. Stein på stein. Tekstbok.
