GERMAN 106: Turkish-German Literature, Cinema, and Theater (GERMAN 206)

One in five people in Germany now has, as it is termed, a background of migration. Immigration from Turkey is probably the most prominent not only in terms of its massiveness and demographic consequences, but also for its significant role in changing Germany's overall cultural, social, and economic landscape. In this course, through analyzing selected literary works, films, and plays produced by Turkish-German writers and artists, we will discuss complex ideas like migration, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, and class, resorting not to oversimplifications and binary thinking but instead to relevant literary concepts and formative historical moments which have shaped the Turkish-German experience. Remote synchronous with plenty of opportunities to participate in group and breakout room discussions and creative projects.

What was it like to be queer in 20th-century Germany?

Taught in English; students of all backgrounds are very welcome. Remote synchronous, with plenty of opportunities for breakout rooms, student discussion, Zoom breaks, and off-screen work.

GERMAN 131: What is German Literature?

How have migration and minority discourses changed the German literary and cultural tradition? What is German literature today, and how does it differ from the traditional notion of Germany as the land of "Dichter und Denker?" We will read texts by Goethe, Novalis, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Thomas Mann, Kafka, Anna Seghers, Brecht, Christa Wolf, Emine Sevgi Özdamar, Yoko Tawada, and Sasha Marianna Salzmann, and discuss such topics as identity formation, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, class, and ecocriticism. Taught in German. GERLANG 3 or equivalent required.

GERMAN 175: CAPITALS: How Cities Shape Cultures, States, and People (COMPLIT 100, DLCL 100, FRENCH 175, HISTORY 206E, ILAC 175, ITALIAN 175, URBANST 153)

This course takes students on a trip to major capital cities, at different moments in time: Renaissance Florence, Golden Age Madrid, Colonial Mexico City, Enlightenment and Romantic Paris, Existential and Revolutionary St. Petersburg, Roaring Berlin, Modernist Vienna, and bustling Buenos Aires. While exploring each place in a particular historical moment, we will also consider the relations between culture, power, and social life. How does the cultural life of a country intersect with the political activity of a capital? How do large cities shape our everyday experience, our aesthetic preferences, and our sense of history? Why do some cities become cultural capitals? Primary materials for this course will consist of literary, visual, sociological, and historical documents (in translation); authors we will read include Boccaccio, Dante, Sor Juana, Montesquieu, Baudelaire, Gogol, Irmgard Keun, Freud, and Borges. Note: To be eligible for WAYS credit, you must take the course for a Letter Grade.

GERMAN 189: KRUPP-FLEX: Work-Life Balance in Today's Germany

This class is being offered in collaboration with Stanford in Berlin, Bing Overseas Studies Program. This course will accompany and deepen the experience of Krupp Interns living and working in German cities and towns in summer 2021. Their participant observations in the workplace and in Germany's rich leisure culture, as well as critical consideration of their own assumptions and experiences in the context of cultural exploration, will be recorded in a reflective Arbeitsjournal (critical journal -- genre and language at the discretion of the student). These reflections will be informed by regular reading of the German press (print or online) around themes on which students choose to focus -- be that the history behind the extensive rights and social services that support labor in Germany; or habits, mores and modes of personal interaction in and outside the workplace; or attitudes toward diversity, gender, class in contemporary German culture; or topics of immediate socio-political con more »

Students will submit their completed journals with an annotated reading list at the end of the summer and will give a short presentation during the mandatory Internship Seminar in late August of 2021. Permission code required. You will receive a permission code from Cornelia Kastelan - ckastelan@stanford.edu.
