GERM 431 (TH) Changing German Realities Since the Congress of Vienna (1)
In the past two hundred years political events, intellectual ventures and technological innovations have profoundly changed the realities in which people tried to make sense of their life and social role. The demise of empires, the redrawing of borders, the shifts in lifestyle from the early machine age to the digital era, and the repositioning of gender and cultural difference all led to far-reaching adjustments in values and patterns of behavior. We will explore a variety of German literary texts, historical documents and films to understand the impact that these changes and developments have had from the early nineteenth century to the European context of today . Conducted in German.
