GERM 286 - Germans, Jews and Turks


This class studies the expression of cultural identity in central European literature. How have people in central Europe come to think of themselves or others as “Germans,” “Jews,” “Turks,” or some combinations thereof? While the Holocaust is obviously central to the German-Jewish relationship, it is not the only focus of this course-we will also study the emancipation of the Jews in the German-speaking world, German-Jewish assimilation and symbiosis, the rise of anti-Semitism and Zionism, as well as attempts to remember the Holocaust. And while the long history of the relationship between Jews and non-Jews in Germany will be a major component of our course, we will also study the emergence of Turkish culture in the German-speaking world and conclude with reflections on Germany today as a multicultural nation.
