GERST 3260

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

This course examines German history and culture from the margins. Looking at „oddballs, outcasts, and rebels" in German literature and film from the 19th to the 21st  century, we will study representations and constructions of those who are excluded – because, for example, of "race," religion, gender, sexual orientation, class – or those who choose non-conformity. Who defines what it means to be "outside"? What is, in these cases, the relationship between the individual and society?  What do representations of marginal or marginalized figures tell us about the successful or failed constructions of society and identity, about family-, friendship- and gender-relations?
