Berlin Tales Study Tour
(You must be enrolled in the course MLAL 3504 "Berlin Tales" for the Spring 2014 semester in order to participate in this study tour.)
Maria Ebner

This spring tour will take students on a reading journey that starts in the New York City focusing on historical texts and cultural narratives on the metropolis of Berlin. During spring-break students will embark on a different journey as class participants travel together to discover the actual streets of Berlin, the center of modernity in Germany itself. Students will read authors who present conflicting views and engaging perspectives on four distinct Berlins: The Jewish Berlin of the Weimar Republic, Berlin during the Third Reich, the City as the Capital of East Germany, and lastly, Berlin as booming Metropolis of the 21st century. Examining some of Berlin’s most important aesthetic, political, social and anthropological inventions and re-inventions, the course will focus on questions revolving around three topics: 1) the impact of technology on artists/writers and their views of the city; 2) the political and social vocation of art; and 3) the city as a place of contesting notions of national identity.
This course is taught in English.
