|Winter Term 2015 Deutsche? Demokratische? Republik? - 1521 - GER 417
Prerequisites/Notes: GER 312
Catalog Description : In the years since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, both the promise and the problems of the German Democratic Republic have faded from memory. Indeed, the experience seems to have receded into the distant past. This course explores both the lofty goals and difficult circumstances of the DDR’s birth and its gradual decline and fall. The course pays particular attention to literary and filmic representations of hope and fear that the country engendered.
