GERM180 PO - Deutschland in Schwarz und Weiss: Rassismus, Xenophobie, und deutsche Geschichte/Germany Black and White: Race, Xenophobia, and Germany History

When Offered: Fall 2021.
Instructor(s): H. Rindisbacher
Based on a blend of texts, this cultural-studies course provides a survey of the current state of race relations and racial discourse in the German-speaking countries. It draws on input from literary sources, discussions in media, presentations in film and other visuals, and experiences in daily life. The course will also facilitate conversations on (colonial) history, comparison of racial issues and racism between the Germanic countries and the USA, and provide broader context for aspects of (labor) migration, refugee policies, and the persistence of xenophobia and right-wing ideologies. The course will also present national and transnational efforts (for instance via the EU) to address the social ills of racism and discrimination. Prerequisites: GERM044 PO.
