GRMN 3410

20C & 21C German Literature

20th Century Literature of the German Speaking Countries

The focus of this course is the literature and film related to the topics of flight and migration into, out of and within Germany, with the overarching theme of "displacement." Based on literary texts of various lengths and genres, as well as feature films, the course explores the ways the flight, migration, and social and cultural displacement have manifested themselves in literature and film from the 1930s to the present, with particular emphasis on works appearing since 1945. The course involves extensive classroom discussion, scholarly writing assignments of increasing difficulty, and student presentations on course topics and readings.
