GMST 091. Topics in German Studies II
In this advanced sixth semester course we will read contemporary literature and autobiographical prose from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in order to learn about authors’ relationship with language in general, and with the German language in particular. We will look at identity construction for bilingual and multilingual authors, as well as the ways in which writers grapple with finding language to express ideas of gender and dis/ability as they contest cultural barriers.
