GRM 259 - Criminals, Outcasts, and (con) Artists in German Culture

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Cross-listed as: GLS 259 . Readings and Discussion in English. This course mines the rich field of German crime fiction to explore the relationship between authority (the state, the academy, the church, tradition) and those who oppose it through criminal and/or aesthetic transgressions. What is the relationship between art and crime? What does criminality mean in a society that is led by a criminal regime? To what extent does society produce its own criminals, and to what end? Texts selected will vary. May be repeated once for credit when content changes. For current offerings review the variable topic course listing below or use the course search to filter by variable topic type.
