GERMAN225L-02B Berlin: Crossroads of History (with Jutta Handte)

An interdisciplinary introduction to modern German history and culture from the late nineteenth century to the present. Using the German capital of Berlin as its focal point, the class examines the varied historical, socio-political, and artistic changes in German culture throughout the twentieth century. Based on a broad range of media - from literature, film, photography, drawing, and other visual arts to music and theater - students will investigate topics such as the aftermath of the German unification of 1871, Berlin's vibrant and provocative culture of the 1920s and early 1930s, the devastating Jewish genocide, the divided city of the Cold War, the collapse of the Wall and the creation of today's Berlin Republic. Taught in English; no knowledge of German necessary.

Crosslisted: GERMAN 225L and HIST 225L are the same course.
