description: This seminar focuses on discourses on the family
advanced by German and Austrian playwrights from the second half of
the 18th century to the late 20th century. Focusing on the dramatic
representation of the family will allow us to analyze the link between
bourgeois and national identity, and we will also have the opportunity
to address questions of gender, class, generational conflict,
bourgeois morality, religion, and Bildung. We will trace the
development of theatrical representations of family through the
interpretation of selected dramatic and theoretical texts.
