GER E 121 "Germany: An Imagined Nation" Americans and Germans often think of Germany as an "old" country as opposed to the USA being relatively "new." The modern Federal Republic of Germany and its national boundaries are, however, only as old as "Twin Peaks" and the Ninja Turtles. Nonetheless, German identity is both internally and externally understood as having a kind of traditional cohesion. Given the political instability that for most of history has characterized German speaking regions of Central and Eastern Europe, the appearance of this consistency is largely a cultural as opposed to a political achievement. What results are a number of sometimes surprising notions of what is considered ¿typically German,¿ such as nude volleyball in the center of Munich. In order to untangle some of the complexities that go into the production and re-production of German national identity throughout the history of Germany, we will look primarily at what we are calling "cultural objects." These cultural objects include beer, the national football/soccer team, hijab, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, and the Berlin Wall. This course is taught in English and requires no prerequisite knowledge of German, history or cultural studies. Required books: Neil MacGregor, Germany: Memories of a Nation (Knopf, ISBN-13: 9781101875667) Hagen Schulze, Germany: A New History (Harvard, ISBN-13: 9780674005457)

This course investigates the cultural history of Germany from the medieval period through the Reformation to German Reunification and the emergence of the European Union. Taught entirely in English, the course will introduce students to major historical developments and cultural specificities of the German speaking countries. We will acquaint ourselves with major features of social, economic, artistic, and philosophic developments through a wide array of examples reaching from short texts, objects, images to films and discuss questions of national identity and the place of Germany on the international scene. Situated in the center of Europe, Germany has played and is still playing a crucial role in European culture and politics. Recently, it has become the key player in a time in which the European project is at stake. There is no more ideal time to gain a critical and informed perspective on these issues while deepening our knowledge of the past. Attendance and participation as well as quizzes and response papers will be the basis for the grade. Required texts and materials: Hagen Schulze, Germany: A New History, Harvard University Press. ¿ ASIN: B001G4CB3I Selected readings: All other texts will be provided on Canvas (canvas.iu.edu) under ¿Files¿.

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. 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.

Fairy tales are a part of all cultures. They can be defined as traditional stories written for children, with imaginary creatures, magic, and 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 nowadays intended for children, this has not always been the case. 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 that are featured in the first book of her trilogy, and examine lesser-known fairy tales (Grimm Brothers, Ludwig Bechstein, Wilhelm Hauff, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, Peter Asbjørnsen). How This Class Works This is not going to be a standard lecture class where the students mainly listen to the professor and take notes. Instead, a lot of time you will be discussing the material either in groups or with the whole class. A strong emphasis is placed on participation, and you are expected to come to class prepared to speak, ask questions, voice opinions and listen to others. Some sessions will include performative techniques and activities from actor training in order to afford you a deeper and more personalized grasp of the material. Photos might be taken for use in class; permissions for any other use (e.g. as part of a journal publication) have to be sought individually. Goals By the end of this course we will have read and examined various fairy tales as well as their interpretations and adaptations to different contexts and media. You should have developed an understanding of intertextuality and acquired knowledge about the historical conditions that led to the collection and dissemination of fairy tales in German-speaking countries. Furthermore, you should have gained a wider awareness of German fairy tales as well as other fairy tales that have originated elsewhere yet have become a staple in German cultures. Learning outcomes - Knowledge of a multitude of fairy tales that go back to the Brothers Grimm, Ludwig Bechstein, and Wilhelm Hauff, as well as fairy tales that originated elsewhere yet have become a staple in German cultures (Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, Peter Asbjørnsen). - Understanding fairy tale archetypes, themes, and plot structures. - Awareness of the concept of intertextuality. - Awareness of underlying socio-political contexts of fairy tales and historical conditions that led to the collection and dissemination of fairy tales in German-speaking countries. - Awareness of the difference between fairy tales and literary fairy tales Required readings - Cornelia Funke (2010): Reckless (Series: Mirrorworld). New York and Boston: Little Brown and Company. ISBN-13: 978031605609 (Note: You can obtain this book from Amazon: hardcover. By the time of publication of this course description 118 copies were still available from other sellers. You are encouraged to buy the book soon. Failure to have the book in the beginning of class will result in points taken off your weekly participation grade.) - Selected fairy tales and articles on CANVAS.

GER- E342 | Esther Ham Topic: E342: The Dutch Golden Age 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 this course, we will start at the beginning of the 17th century, find out what happened to the Dutch colony and how the relationship between the two countries developed until the year 2019. Grading will entail: several short writing assignments, a midterm and a final. Class participation is a requirement for successful completion of the course; therefore it also covers a solid part of the grade.

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.

Topics in Scandinavian Literature: The Tales of Hans Christian Andersen (3 cr.) This class meets during the second eight-week session. It is taught in English, and carries Arts & Humanities Breadth of Inquiry credit and Global Civ & Culture Studies credit. It meets with GER-K507, EURO-W406 and EURO-W605. In this course we will delve into the universe of the writer Hans Christian Andersen and his fascinating literary production. We will pay special attention to his tales and examine them through their structure and content. We¿ll address the way they relate to the author¿s life and his time, and discuss their relevance to us. The Emperor¿s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, and The Little Mermaid are just some of the extremely popular and highly beloved stories we will engage with. Ever relevant and touching, they penetrate deeply into the soul of modern man. Andersen examines this soul with all its beauty and repulsiveness, reaches to the core of humanity, and expresses it in a previously unimagined and subsequently unsurpassable way. What was it in the unique personality of this particular human being that made possible his astounding artistic achievement? What was it in the age and the place that allowed for such profoundly vast and successful oeuvre? What were the premises that laid the ground for such a phenomenal career? What were its roots? What were the results? By the end of the course you will be able to identify and discuss major historical, philosophical, literary and artistic currents in the development of 19th c. Europe. You will be able to analyze literary texts in terms of form and content, as well as use them to identify and question assumptions with which you approach being and the world. The final grade will be based on two response papers, regular quizzes, one final exam, the core of a final paper, regular class attendance and participation in the class discussion.

Topic: Migration and Movement: Border Crossings in German Art and Culture. Since its announcement of open border politics in 2015, Germany has become a pivotal player on the stage of 21st-century global migration. As a result, artists around the world who engage with people on the move are processing German immigration politic. They ask if Germany's Willkommenskultur ('Welcome-culture') forces people to stay strangers or if people actually are invited to settle down in the new country. Well before 2015, questions of movement, strangeness, and belonging already shaped artistic works of the 20th century. Beginning with Bertolt Brecht¿s notion of the fugitive as "the messenger of misfortune," we will trace the themes of migration and movement in German art and culture from the 20th century to today. In this course, we will be interested in how literature, film, performance, and the visual arts depict people on the move and how new media such as computers and smartphones change our perception of migration. We will pursue the following questions: What role does migration play in the German-speaking world? Who is considered "foreign?" How do the various media approach migration? How do migrants themselves use media to convey their stories? How do we engage with people on the move? Is there personal contact or do more and more encounters occur within the realm of social media? We will engage with works as diverse as: Candize Breitz, A Love Story; Nurkan Erpulat, Verrücktes Blut; Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Angst Essen Seele auf; Elfriede Jelinek, Die Schutzbefohlenen; Hiwa K, A View from Above; Herta Müller, Reisende auf einem Bein; Anna Seghers, Transit; Zentrum für Politische Schönheit, Flüchtlinge Fressen.

Topic: Theater as Battle Ground: Performance in Contemporary Germany. Theater directors and performers worldwide currently perceive Germany as the most exciting place to work. The number of international directors and performance groups who regularly create and show their works in Germany has become overwhelming. Germany not only attracts artists whose aesthetic is considered too experimental in their own countries of origins, but directors who are repressed in their own countries because of rising totalitarianism. This contributes to the exceptionally rich and diverse forms and aesthetics which have come to characterize the German theater scene. Thanks to this multiplicity, theater in contemporary Germany successfully intervenes in socio-political discourses, and even initiates relevant discussions regarding Germany¿s present and future ¿ notwithstanding the appearance of new media. In this course, we will take up the current discussions around the importance and identity of the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, one of the most established and recognized theatres in Germany, to engage with current aesthetics, institutions, directors, and ensembles. We will discuss the concept of postdramatic theatre, but we will as well examine central ideas of a publicly funded state and city theatre system. We will engage with works such as: Frank Castorf, Die Räuber; Christoph Marthaler, Murx den Europäer! Murx ihn! Murx ihn! Murx ihn!; René Pollesch, Kill your Darlings! Streets of Berladelphia; She She Pop, Homestory; Rimini Protokoll, Situation Rooms; Christoph Schlingensief, Chance 2000; Rabih Mroué, Riding on a Cloud.

This course introduces students to German morphology, with emphasis on description and analysis. Morphology is the branch of linguistics devoted to the study of words. We consider in G458 the three major areas of German morphology: (1) inflection: grammatically determined forms of words, e.g. der lange Mantel-ein langer Mantel-die langen Mäntel-lange Mäntel; singen-sang-gesungen; (2) derivation: the creation of new words using devices such as prefixes and suffixes, e.g. finden-erfinden-Erfinder-Erfindung; and (3) compounding: the combination of two or more words to form a single word, for which German is so famous, e.g. Donaudampfschiffahrtgesellschaft, Entwicklungsplanungskommissionsvorsitzende(r), Dauerarbeitslosigkeitsbekämpfungsgesetz. Students in this course should: (1) significantly enlarge their German vocabularies; (2) improve their grasp of the grammatically determined forms of nouns, verbs, and adjectives; and (3) gain insights into the rules and principles governing the structure of words in German. The course grade is based on problem sets (50%), a quiz (15%), class participation (10%) and the final examination (25%). The course material is in the form of extensive handouts. Attendance and class participation are crucial to success in this course. Prerequisite: Completion of G330 with a grade of C- or better. No previous background in linguistics is assumed. The language of instruction is German. G458 counts toward COAS Distribution Requirement in NMMC/Mathematical Sciences and Cognition or Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

Each student will be required to give a presentation in class on a Dutch subject topic to be selected in consultation with the instructor. Grading will entail: quizzes, a midterm, a presentation, an oral examination, a couple of short essays and a final.

*This course is the first semester of elementary Yiddish. Students are not expected to have prior knowledge of Yiddish. They are, however, strongly encouraged to get acquainted with the Hebrew alphabet beforehand. Conducted mainly in Yiddish, this course aims to develop (a) essential communication skills (reading, writing and listening) and (b) awareness of the socio-cultural context of modern literary Yiddish and its communicative, expressive, and stylistic varieties. The grammar will include: nouns, verbs, and adjectives; grammatical gender and the case system; word-order, idiomatic usages, and phraseology. Particular emphasis will be placed on dialogue, grammatical drills, and students¿ writing and active discussion in Yiddish. Reading and study materials will contain: short literary texts (prose and poetry), dialogues, songs, and selections from Yiddish wit and humor. Students will be required to participate actively in class and regularly prepare their homework assignments.
