Course Description: The refugee movements to Germany and Europe, the conflicts over the European immigration and border policy, and the social conflicts associated with these issues have been addressed in literature in various ways in recent years. The focus is often on the reflection of existing power relationships and forms of perception. In addition to the portrayal of individual refugee stories, the literature on the subject of flight and migration also deals with the questioning of existing habits and agreements, the self-evident nature of European prosperity, and German and European history. The view of the refugees on the Federal Republic is contrasted here with the German view of the refugees. The seminar describes and analyzes these different perspectives on the topic. Texts include works by Jenny Erpenbeck, Abbas Khider, Maxi Obexer, and Norbert Gstrein.
