Courses: New German Cinema (POLSH263B01)

Spring 2011

This course provides a brief introduction to film studies and explores in particular post-wall German film. We will investigate how the selected films represent ideas of the nation visually, and how they aim to create or deconstruct certain myths of the German nation. Course will also scrutinize in what ways the films depict issues of gender and race as part of the German national narrative struggle. Course is taught in English with an extra session in German.
