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.
