Course Description: This course offers a study of “Heimat,” through the use of literary texts and films. The German word “Heimat” is often referred to as untranslatable. It can be roughly described as referring to the place in which a person is born and raised, but it can also be used to designate a different place, location, or even an ideal concept such as language that makes one feel at home. The course explores “Heimat” through the nineteenth Century, World War II, post-World War II, and the rise of the home movie in the second half of the twentieth Century. Students actively participate in class, read seminar materials, watch film screenings, submit written papers, and are assessed on a final exam.
