GERMAN 330: Foreignness: Defining the Self and Other in Medieval German Literature (GERMAN 230)

Race, class, gender, and sexuality are generally considered key categories for understanding our identity in modern society. But how did people in the Middle Ages define themselves and others? In this course we will survey medieval and early modern German literature, looking at ways in which people grappled with cultural difference and the increasingly global society in which they lived. Topics will include national identity, gender, Jews, pagans, monsters, travel, and crusade. In addition to acquiring a foundation in medieval German literature (800-1600), students will learn to think critically about social identities and the ways in which we make sense of cultural difference. Some course materials are only available in German.
