Topics in Germanic Literatures - How German is it? Alexander Kluge's Germany (Undergraduate)

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2010

Alexander Kluge, decorated with virtually every prize a writer, movie director and TV producer can receive in Germany, has always been a political author focused on the history and fate of Germany. His extensive and wide-ranging body of work can be considered as one vast library devoted to this topic. Drawing on this multi-media collection the seminar will read stories, films, television-programs and theoretical texts to develop a sense of just what Kluge's Germany looks like.
