Course Description: The seminar provides an overview of the political, cultural, artistic, and literary work of famous Berliners from over three centuries to the present day. Against the background of the change in the image of women in German or European society, we get to know women from different occupations, spheres of activity, and areas of life. Some of them are controversial personalities who have shocked society, some role models and idols, but always courageous, self-confident, critical individuals. Starting with Queen Louise of Prussia and the famous Salonièren of the nineteenth century, continuing with politicians like Rosa Luxemburg and painters like Käthe Kollwitz to popular artists of the Weimar period, the course stretches a wide historical arc. In addition, the course deals extensively with today's women's personalities from music, film, literature, and politics and analyze their situation.
