GM 326 German Culture Through Film


This course examines different aspects of German culture through film. Students will discuss the representations of cultural practices and historical events in Weimar cinema, New German Films, and newer movies directed after reunification. Through the analysis of these films, students will gain insights into the construction national identity and will also search for new directions which don’t revolve around the imagined community of the nation. We will deal with expressions of alterity, terrorism, state power, ideological conceptions of East Germany, and gender as well as with artistic expressions of metropolitan areas. The course is conducted in English, however, German minors can submit written work in German.
