GERMAN 218: Central European Literature

Central Europe is not a clearly defined region so much as an idea debated with particular intensity in the successor states of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Part reality part fantasy, "Central Europe" refers to a contested space between East and West, between cosmopolitanism and provincial narrowness, a space whose diversity has fostered cultural creativity, political conflict and utopian fantasy. Our survey will focus on fiction, memoires and essayistic commentary from the successor states of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. It will comprise the dissolution of the empire, the interwar years, the Cold War decades and the postcommunist era. Attention to the predicament of small nations, "minor" literatures and cultural cross-pollination. Authors include Musil, Kafka, Roth, Kosztolányi, Márai, Hasek, Svevo, Kis, Torberg, Hrabal, Kundera, Esterházy, Magris. Discussion and readings in English.

GERMAN 244: Religious and Gender Identity in Postmigrant Theatre (GERMAN 344)

This course will center around three recent theatre plays associated under the auspices of what has been called Germany's postmigrant theatre: Günther Senkel and Feridun Zaimo¿lu's Black Virgins (Schwarze Jungfrauen), Nurkan Erpulat and Jens Hillje's Crazy Blood (Verrücktes Blut), and Sasha Marianna Salzmann's Mothertongue (Muttersprache Mameloschn). Postmigrant theatre has been ushered in as a theatre movement that has successfully established and institutionalized new aesthetics, narratives, and political tools for artists of color and of different linguistic backgrounds in Germany. As a space where diversity is both explored and affirmed, postmigrant theatre and the abovementioned plays in particular attend to the intersections and tensions of religion and gender. Engaging contemporary political and social debates about representations of gender and Islam and queer identity and Judaism in the West, we will examine how theatre and performance forge new spaces of encounter, community, and even identity. Together with these plays, we will read texts from theatre and performance theories, women of color feminisms, gender performativity, homonormativity, and queer and trans of color critique. This course is designed as an introduction to postmigrant theatre and its theatrical intervention in contemporary thinking on gender and religion.nNOTE: This course must be taken for a letter grade and a minimum of 3 units to be eligible for Ways credit.
