GRMT180H PO - Germany Black and White: Race, Xenophobia, and Germany History

When Offered: Fall 2021.
Instructor(s): H. Rindisbacher
This is a half-credit English-language version of the German-language GERM180 PO offered for all students who do not have advanced German language capabilities (German-44 or higher to enroll in the full credit GERM180 PO) but are interested in the thematics. Based on a blend of sources, 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 texts, discussions in media, presentations in film and other visuals, and experiences in daily life. A key goal of the course is, beyond the broad content focus on questions of race, migration, xenophobia, class, and DEI, to offer an alternative view of these topics beyond the US-American debate. Many students are doubtlessly already acquainted with the latter, and the course provides a new lens on these questions through the cultural historical parameters of a different country/culture. Lastly, the course also presents national and transnational efforts (for instance via the EU) to address the social ills of racism and discrimination.
