GERST 2020 - Literary Contexts and Texts: The Myth of 1968


(LA-AS) Satisfies Option 1.      
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: GERST 2000  or equivalent or placement by examination. Taught in German. Students must take one of the following courses as a prerequisite for Study Abroad in a German-speaking country: GERST 2020, GERST 2040 , or GERST 2060 .

D. McBride.

1968 marked a turning point in German history. Protesting students upended the social, cultural, and political order with a utopian vision of revolution that ended in a decade-long wave of domestic terrorist violence. This intermediate language course examines four primary texts in four different media (historical fiction, avant-garde film, popular music, multimedia art) that treat the myth of 1968. As we study these texts in historical context, we will expand our oral and written command of idiomatic German through systematic grammar review and enriched vocabulary practice.
