GER-E 121 AN INTRO TO GERMAN CULTURE (7924)

Topic: "The Concept of the Genius: Studies in German Culture" The course examines one of the most cherished, pervasive, and contested concepts in the history of Western civilization: the genius. What is a genius? Is he (and until the early 20th century, it was definitely a "he," and not a "she") someone who masters a craft and then transforms it, or a natural force that transcends the mundane rules and limits of mere mortals? Is he a vessel through which a greater power speaks, or a dynamo of original and intentional creation? Is ingenious creation always spontaneous, or can it be gradual? Is the genius always an artist, or does he show up in other areas of human activity? Do we associate a given kind of genius with a given national provenance? And finally, who decides who's a genius and who's not, or in other words, when does a genius turn into a charlatan? The course is intended to raise all of these issues through examination of a number of different kinds of works (essay, philosophical treatise, poetry, short story, review, music drama, political manifesto, cultural criticism, and the novel), with special emphasis given to those from German-speaking Europe. We will begin with the figure of the inspired poet in classical antiquity and the divine artist in the Renaissance, and then proceed to the ways these figures were represented and discussed in European Romanticism, to the exalted creator in 19th-century philosophy and psychology, and finally to the assumptions accompanying the figure in modern culture. There is a midterm exam and, in the final weeks of the course, preceding exam week, students will give a short presentation in which they describe an independent research project, the subject of which will have been agreed upon by the student and the instructor no later than three weeks beforehand. Sessions will occasionally begin with a short quiz. All texts will be read in English translation. No knowledge of German is required. No credit given in Germanic Studies. However, the course counts toward the College¿s distribution requirement in the Arts and Humanities. Grades will be computed as follows: Attendance = 15% Participation = 25% Quizzes = 10% Midterm = 25% Presentation = 25% Required Texts: Mann, Thomas.

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. ISBN-13: 978-0316056076 - Selected fairy tales on CANVAS - Articles/excerpts on CANVAS

Topic: Accident, Trauma, and Catastrophe in German and European Literature and Film Accidents and catastrophes are dramatic and always possible events that challenge individual and collective life. They break the protective shields that ward off the threats surrounding us. Their traumatic impact calls upon psychological and cultural coping mechanisms and forces us to reconfigure our lives that will never be the same. How have cultures dealt with the unexpected breakdown of order and normality? This course imparts a critical knowledge about the models according to which narrations about these events are formed and asks how literature and film can help to cope with disasters. The stories we tell ourselves help integrate and make sense of what has previously mutilated us. They also anticipate possible future accidents and enable us to cope with them. In Modernity, accident and catastrophe ¿ both previously interpreted as destiny ¿ change their meaning. They stand for contingency and represent a risk inherent in our way of life. Urban spaces, modern working environments, and new means of transportation such as trains and the automobile make accidents more probable and ubiquitous. The course will examine how filmic and narrative representations integrate the disintegration and violence inherent in our world. Accidents are sources for artistic productivity. We will read short texts from the Bible to and Heinrich von Kleist, Franz Kafka, and Thomas Mann, and discuss films from Buster Keaton to Fassbinder. The course is therefore also an introduction to major works of the German and the European literary and cinematic tradition. All texts and materials will be provided on Canvas or are available through the library and websites.

Topic: 17 Objects This course will offer a survey of the cultural, political, scientific, and economic history of German speaking world by focusing on approx. 17 objects. Some of these objects are quite concrete and touchable, including the Autobahn or Leica camera, others are ideas or visions that have gained concretion as if they were objects, such as the concept of "The Self." Each of these objects was transformative in some way, and it will be our task to understand how. Some of the consequences are far from obvious. For example the invention of book printing with moveable type around 1450 (Gutenberg) lead to a religious revolution and the Thirty-Years-War. Can you figure out how and why? Students will have the task to research these objects and to prepare a museum display with these very objects, some of which are actually on this campus (like the Gutenberg Bible). And yes, there will be an exhibition at the end. We will read short texts in German taken from various documents, including literary works, or watch movies clips in which the object plays a prominent role. Taken together, these objects will compose a material history of the German-speaking world from the Middle Ages to today. Our objects include: Unicorn (Middle Ages) Gutenberg Bible/Luther Bible (1492/1545) "The Self" (1770-1800) The Alps in Romanticism and beyond Odol Mouthwash (1893) Freud's Couch 5 Billion Mark Note (1923) Leica Camera Bubikopf (a new female haircut) Hitler's Autobahn and VW Beetle The Wall (1961-1989) Döner The Euro The focus of the class is class discussions and creative research. Most discussions will be in German. We will try to create an atmosphere of fun and low stress. Weekly readings will be fairly short (in German approx..10-15 page; plus some English reference materials of 20-30 pages). There will be a final. Book Orders (required): Hagen Schulze, Germany: A New History, ISBN-13: 978-0674005457 ($ 30) Neil McGregor, Germany. Memories of a Nation, ISBN-13: 978-1101911525 ($15)

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 quizzes, a couple of response papers and a final. Required texts: Reader

Topic: Yiddish Life: On Page, On Stage, On Screen 2nd 8 week course This course will be devoted to a number of major works of early modern Yiddish fiction, drama and film some of them being prime achievements of modern Yiddish creativity dealing with the rapid modernization, identity issues and cultural as well as social aspiration of East European Jews in Europe and in America. These works will be closely read and discussed in class. Each one of the three larger works was also adapted or transformed into a film which will be viewed and critically compared with the literary work that inspired it. Apart from the general introduction to the historical and socio-cultural background of Yiddish literature and culture, this course will also deal with issues of (1) literary structure and representation, (2) fantasy, realism and fiction, (3) the notion of a ¿national¿ literature and its possible role in the so-called "world literature," (4) various specific concerns of a cinematic adaptation of a literary work, (5) the role of drama, theater (and perhaps also cinema) in the cultural public make-up of a stateless national group both in Europe and North America.

This class meets second eight weeks. It is taught in English, and carries Arts and Humanities credit and Culture Studies credit. The class meets with GER-K 507, EUR-W 406 and EUR-W 605. This is a survey course in which we will read important literary works from all the Scandinavian countries: Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark, placing them in historical and regional context. We will be focusing on works which stand out not only within the literary canons of their respective countries, but within the context of the whole of Western literature. Devoting attention to both their form and content, we will discuss the specifics of their literary genre, and of the cultural epoch and social group they represent. The following questions will be addressed: Why are these works important? How were they groundbreaking in their time? What is their current relevance? We will read novels, short stories, dramas, several poems and one saga. By the end of the course you will be able to analyze literary texts in terms of form and content, and use them to identify and question assumptions with which you approach the world. You will understand important concepts from critical theory and will be able to identify major periods in the development of European society in the 19th and 20th centuries. You will gain general knowledge about Scandinavia and its unique place in the world. The final grade will be based on two response papers, a final exam, the core of a final paper, regular class attendance, and participation in the class discussions. Texts: *Course reader (Gisli Sursson¿s Saga, Ibsen, Strindberg, etc.) *Hunger, by Knut Hamsun; translated by Sverre Lyngstad; *The Emperor of Portugalia, by Selma Lagerlöf *Fairy tales, by Hans Christian Andersen; translated by Tiina Nunnally *The wreath, by Sigrid Undset; translated by Tiina Nunnally

This course offers an introduction to major works of German literature and film. We will read and discuss in detail individual literary works -- ranging from drama to novella and poetry -- as well as a number of canonic films. In our discussion, we will consider and unfold thematic and aesthetic aspects and reflect on the way we make sense of art works and what they can teach us about their historical context, about a wide variety of themes, and about us. The grade will be based on short response papers, participation, and a presentation.

Topic: How to Think the Modern World We live in a confusing world. It is difficult to find points of orientation. Some seek it in their culture and tradition; others look to religion; yet others search in various philosophies and spiritual practices. This course tries to provide one set of answers for why we lack direction. We will study key texts by some of the most incisive thinkers of the last two hundred years. These texts help us to think our modern world, but they also confound us, because they are at odds with one another. Perhaps by gaining clarity of our confusion, we can find ways out of it.

Required Texts and Film Viewings All readings and film viewing list will be provided on the course Canvas site under "Modules". In addition to the weekly class meetings, the course requires that all students view the 9-10 films together on Mondays from 7:00-9:00pm. Course Description - Goals Study of German film and/or other manifestations of German popular culture of the twentieth and twenty-first century. COLL (CASE) A&H Breadth of Inquiry credit. Course will be taught in German with readings in German and English. What is culture? Are there elements and qualities that can be considered emblematic of German culture? Who is the audience, intended or not? In this course, we will be examining a selection of twentieth and twenty-first century popular music and films that will assist us in answering these questions. It is certain that we will encounter other questions during the semester, and we will use several different tools and approaches of Cultural, and Media Studies to find the evidence needed to support our answers. By the end of the semester, students will not only have a better understanding of German film and popular music since the early twentieth century, but will also have the skill and acumen to view products of popular culture from different perspectives, and thereby appreciate the ways cultural products are received and consumed.

This course pursues the following two goals: 1. to introduce you to the area of linguistics known as phonetics with particular reference to the articulation of the sounds of (modern standard) German; 2. to introduce you to the area of linguistics known as phonology with particular emphasis on the phonology of (modern standard) German. G448 consists of two parts: Part I (first third of course): The phonetics of German (how the sounds are produced); Part II (the remainder of the course): The phonology of German (the rules governing which sounds are permitted in which positions of German words). The course material will be in the form of extensive handouts. Attendance and class participation are crucial to your success in this course. There will be two quizzes, regular homework assignments and a final examination. The course will be taught entirely in German. This is an introduction to a particular branch of linguistics. Students with no previous knowledge of linguistics are welcome to attend. This course is NOT a pronunciation class, although your pronunciation of German will improve significantly as a result of your participation. G448 counts toward COAS Distribution Requirement in NMMC/Mathematical Sciences and Cognition or Natural Sciences and Mathematics. Required reference work: Mangold, Max; et al.

Topic: The German Market Economy and the Adventures of Capital, Labor, and Migration How much "state" do the Germans feel their "market" needs? A center of mobile financial capital, Germany has also become a magnet of demographic mobility as global migrants seek refuge and opportunity in the economic and political powerhouse of Germany. Wary of the experience of Nazism, postwar policy-makers guided Germany's economic miracle in the belief that markets do not create their own conditions of stability. Rather, the social market economy acknowledges that it is the state¿s job to save capitalism from itself -- from its hyper-individualism, private interests, and political apathy. Our aim in this course will be to plumb the distinction between German and American liberalism. Examining foundational texts of German "ordo-liberalism" as literature and contemporary German literature as reflection on ordo-liberalism, we will consider how markets, state and society interact differently in Germany than in the US. And when -- either the state or market goes wrong -- how is responsibility assigned for ¿risk and apathy in contemporary German fiction? What role does the nation play and can it continue to play the same role in a world of massive population displacement? How are individualism and social belonging, immigration and employment, religion and culture depicted differently than in the US cultural imagination -- especially when the postwar formula is unable to stabilize a world that seems to be careening out of balance? Readings include: - Julie Zeh's political thriller Leere Herzen - Abbas Khider's fantasy of jeopardy and survival among refugees, Der falsche Inder - Kathrin Röggla's snapshot of life among those on perpetual high alert, Die Alarmbereiten

*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.
