German & Its Cultural Contexts
German in Its Cultural Contexts
The course invites students to explore social and cultural developments in Germany from 1871 to the present day from a historical perspective. We begin by examining Germany’s birth as a nation state and end by looking at recent events in today’s reunified Federal Republic. The course aims to lay the foundation for a critical understanding of German culture in its contemporary global context. Writing the biographies of fictional Germans throughout the semester, students will follow the radical changes in German society during the (long) twentieth century and gain an understanding how ‘ordinary’ people in Germany might have lived. A montage of written and visual materials will expose students to elite, mainstream, and marginal cultures alike. Taught in German. (Formerly GRMN 0310) 3 hrs. lect.

Austrian Horror Film
Austrian Horror Film
While horror movies are often looked down upon as a genre full of stereotypical characters and plot lines, they also allow important insights into cultural phenomena, psychological processes, and societal structures. In this course we will focus on horror movies from Austria, taking them as a point of departure for a discussion of the genre and its subgenres beyond Hollywood. It will also serve as an introduction to film analysis, genre theory, and affect theory, as well as cultural comparisons between Austria and the US. 3 hrs. sem.
