20th & 21st Cent. German Film

Screening and Streaming Germany: Film, Television & Netflix
We will interrogate the role that various media forms play in the writing and re-writing of history and the creation of historical memory and identity. Questions that will guide the course include: How have depictions of Germany and German history changed over time? How do film and television influence national and group identity, both intentionally and unintentionally? How has the viewer's behavior changed with the development of new technologies such as Netflix, and how does that affect what stories are told, how they are told, and how they are received? Students will examine the assigned films and televisions series through both an historical and a comparative-media lens.
