Course Long Title

Landscapes and Cityscapes in German Media


This course examines the construction of space in a variety of historical and contemporary German media, answering questions such as: What landscapes and cityscapes contribute to a German identity and how? How do geographical location, cultural particularity, and historical context contribute to (sometimes contested) discourses on these spaces? How is the construction of these spaces impacted by the historical diversity of cultures in Central Europe, as well as by modern migration to the area? And how have German speakers conceptualized and colonized "other" spaces in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas? Prerequisite(s): GER 233 and one other 200-level course in German
