GERM 366 - Postwar Germany


The course will begin with an overview of National Socialism as a basis for understanding the cultural leap that Germany undertook following World War II. It will examine issues of Vergangenheitsbewältigung (coming to terms with the past), the economic miracle in West Germany, and the evolution and collapse of the German Democratic Republic. The course will conclude with opportunities and problems generated by reunification. We will look at texts by writers such as Handke, Kroetz, Plenzdorf, Strauß, Rinser, Morgner, Bachmann, and Wolf, as well as films and other media. Taught in German. Prerequisite(s):   Alternate years. (4 Credits)
