GRM 355 - Weimar Culture

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Conducted in German. The Weimar Republic (1918-1933) is characterized by economic turmoil, political violence and extremism that resulted in Hitler’s rise to power and the Third Reich. At the same time, it also represents one of the most productive periods in artistic and intellectual terms in the twentieth century. Literature, film, art, and historical documents will help us explore this period’s tension between social and cultural advancement and political repression.

Prerequisite: GRM 222 .
Note: Plus-2 option available. Not offered every year.
Instructor: Samper Vendrell
