JUS 376 German Jewish Writers | The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies

JUS 376 German Jewish Writers


Also available as an honors course.

This course will focus on the contributions of Jewish writers to German literature. In each case, a reading of the writer’s works will include an examination of that writer’s dual identity as Jew and as German, and a questioning of how this duality is reflected in the writer’s texts. Issues of assimilation/acculturation, Jewish identification, and Jewish self-hatred will all be discussed. Students will examine a wide variety of texts, ranging from purely literary texts — poetry, prose, and drama — to works of philosophy and political science.
