GER 154D Contemporary German Fiction: The Search for a New Identity

New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge II.

Course Description: This course will examine present day German writers in light of the Nazi past. We will ask throughout our readings whether it is possible to achieve a German identity free from the stain of recent history. We will proceed to a discussion and reflection on a matter of basic importance in the field of art appreciation: Should art have an ethical/moral obligation towards society or should art be unfettered by moral considerations?
