Note: If you took GERM 302 001 in Winter 2019/20 for credit, then you cannot take GERM 206 001 for credit. This new course aims to introduce to the current themes and historical settings of exile, flight and migration. We will critically discuss topics such as diasporic and national belonging, asylum and integration politics, multiculturality and European cultural identity. All readings are in translation and focus on contemporary transnational German-language literature and film affected by migration. While the beginning of the course covers Jewish and political exile during National Socialism, the other parts deal with Germany as an immigration country since the fall of the wall in 1989, including its "Welcome Culture" as response to the global "refugee crisis" in 2015.
