Catalog Description : Topics in German Cultural Studies allows for an in-depth examination of topics across time, for example, women’s writing or crime fiction, or it permits a detailed analysis of special topics, for example, Turkish-German culture in contemporary German film. May be repeated when topic is different.

Topic for Spring 2022: Heimat and Belonging
What does it mean to belong and who determines this status? How is home defined in the German-speaking world, and in what ways does nationalism inform it? How has it been reimagined over time from different positionalities? In this course, we will explore Heimat as a socio-political and cultural concept from the 19th to the 21st century through literary, artistic, musical, architectural, and political texts that allow us to investigate intersectional power structures, such as whiteness, Christianity, heteronormativity, and patriarchy that frame and inform belonging in the German context.
