IAS 4102 - German Literature & Culture: Constructing A German National Identity, 1789-1918

Description
This course studies cultural expressions of German nationalism and the formation and cultivation of a German national identity from the collapse of Prussia and the Holy Roman Empire in the wake of Napoleon's armies (1805-06) to shortly before the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. In our examination of imaginative literature, opera, national anthems, painting, public monumental art, essays, propaganda, and popular culture from this period we will seek to identify how each work is both a product and a producer of the moment in which it was created and will consider the differences in vision of the nation and national culture across the political spectrum. Of particular importance to our investigation will be the roles of men, women, and the family; language and other ethnic markers; heroism; the Prussian monarchy; the historical past; legends; geography; and armed conflict, foreign occupation, and the experience of defeat in cementing national identity. The course will focus on German-French relations insofar as these profoundly shaped conceptions of German national identity in the period.
