2464 LACS-261-01 Berlin to Hollywood 1.00 SEM Doerre, Jason MW: 2:00PM-3:15PM TBA GLB2  
  Enrollment limited to 19 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: In Person Course Length: 13 weeks
  Also cross-referenced with FILM Cross-listing: GRMN-261-01
  Through close examination of films and readings, this course will explore the influence that filmmaking during the Weimar Republic period of German history had on Hollywood and American popular culture. By looking closely at films and filmmakers, we will examine the continuities and breaks between German film and classic Hollywood film. Starting with the expressionism and new objectivity styles in Germany during the 1920s, we will move on to emigration of filmmakers from the Third Reich and their work in Hollywood. Among others, we will examine genres such as the anti-Nazi film, film noir, and comedies, as well as explore questions regarding race, gender, and ideology.
2465 LACS-264-01 Literature and the Law 1.00 SEM Assaiante, Julia TR: 9:20AM-10:40AM TBA HUM  
  Enrollment limited to 19 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: In Person Course Length: 13 weeks
    Cross-listing: GRMN-264-01
  In literature and in law, language shapes rhetorical worlds that seek to represent, constitute and interpret the actions of human beings and their world. Therefore, examining how the law is represented in literature gives insight both into how this representation shifts to accommodate historical and cultural differences, and how central the role of narrative is to legal institutions. This course will focus on representations of the law in German-language literature from the late 18th century onward, to examine how literature relates the human condition to law, to other central cultural values (love, honor and justice), and how literature can put the law itself into question. The course will emphasize literary interrogations of National Socialist law, which take up these questions in their most urgent form. Taught in English.
2506 LACS-271-01 Reading the Italian Landscape 1.00 SEM Del Puppo, Dario TR: 3:55PM-5:10PM TBA GLB2  
  Enrollment limited to 19 Waitlist available: Y Mode of Instruction: In Person Course Length: 13 weeks
    Cross-listing: ITAL-271-01
  All cultures are rooted in geography. Using literary works, images, cartography, and digital mapping technology we will ask how the relationship between culture and geography in Italy has changed over time. Italians have adapted to living in a fragile landscape, prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods. Two world wars and industrialization have also left their mark. How, for example, have extreme weather and the climate change crisis in the Mediterranean region impacted the country? Analogous to how we will interpret the Italian landscape students will be encouraged to interpret the challenges and opportunities of their own landscapes that are like open books that tell complex tales.
2467 LACS-279-90 Ital Theater As A Way Of Life 1.00 SEM di Florio Gula, Martina MW: 2:00PM-3:40PM N/A GLB2  
  Enrollment limited to 19 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote Course Length: 10 weeks
  Also cross-referenced with THDN Cross-listing: ITAL-279-90
  The Nobel prize dramatist, Luigi Pirandello, argued paradoxically that art was more real than life. From Medieval sacred representations and Renaissance comedies of manner to Modernist and contemporary drama, Italian writers and performers have used theater as a vehicle of entertainment, education, and social change. This course examines the influence of Italian theater on the nation's culture, identity, and society. Besides analyzing several 'classics' (Machiavelli's Mandragola, Goldoni's La Locandiera, Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of An Author), 'theater', 'drama', and the 'theatrical' in a wider sense will be explored. Why does Carnival continue to be a ritualistic event for Italians? What role do dramatic religious and secular processions still play? How has theater influenced visual media? How are gender and diversity reflected in Italian drama?
1926 LACS-290-90 Italian Cinema 1.00 LEC King, Joshua TR: 2:00PM-3:40PM N/A GLB2

Our approach will be necessarily interdisciplinary. While our focus will be on literary and cultural movements, texts will include those by prominent historians as well. This course will be taught in English, and all texts will be in English. Films will be offered with English subtitles.

  Who moves freely across borders? Who can return to one's native land after leaving home? How does one's race, gender, and social class shape access to space? These are the questions that we will explore as we consider three very different, yet intertwined forms of mobilities: tourism, immigration, and exile. If the recent covid-19 crisis has shed new light on the impact and consequences of globalized mobilities, it has also taught us that immobility can be a luxury and a privilege, therefore giving a new meaning to the walls that surround us. This seminar thus aims at developing critical awareness of what mobility and immobility means in our globalized contemporary world. Possible reading list includes works by Bachi, Chevillard, Darrieussecq, Elalamy, Laferrière, Leduc, Mabanckou, NDiaye, Sartre, and Taïa.

  In literature and in law, language shapes rhetorical worlds that seek to represent, constitute and interpret the actions of human beings and their world. Therefore, examining how the law is represented in literature gives insight both into how this representation shifts to accommodate historical and cultural differences, and how central the role of narrative is to legal institutions. This course will focus on representations of the law in German-language literature from the late 18th century onward, to examine how literature relates the human condition to law, to other central cultural values (love, honor and justice), and how literature can put the law itself into question. The course will emphasize literary interrogations of National Socialist law, which take up these questions in their most urgent form. Taught in English.

  Italy has existed as a nation-state for slightly less than 150 years. For many more years than this, however, the territory it currently occupies was divided into numerous principalities. For more than four centuries starting in in the early 1300s, a number of the more important of these principalities were controlled by monarchies located in today’s Spain. In this course, we will analyze the rich history of Hispanic-Italian coexistence, endeavoring first to discern some of the reasons why this important history is not better known, then examining the many channels of "cultural commerce" between the peoples of the Iberian and Italian Peninsulas in the early modern and contemporary periods, as well as in the context of today in today’s united Europe.

  This course offers an examination of the pervasive topic of violence and its relation to politics in contemporary Spanish American theatre from the second half of the twentieth century to the present. We will center our discussions on three controversial and debated issues: 1) The complex role of politics within the discourse of theatre, 2) the implications and repercussions of staging the violence experienced by the members of society, 3) and the victims' attempts to face their violent past by preserving memory. In this way Spanish American theatre bears witness, documents, and also poeticize the struggle for human rights in the region and the need to never forget.

  All cultures are rooted in geography. Using literary works, images, cartography, and digital mapping technology we will ask how the relationship between culture and geography in Italy has changed over time. Italians have adapted to living in a fragile landscape, prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods. Two world wars and industrialization have also left their mark. How, for example, have extreme weather and the climate change crisis in the Mediterranean region impacted the country? Analogous to how we will interpret the Italian landscape students will be encouraged to interpret the challenges and opportunities of their own landscapes that are like open books that tell complex tales.

  The Nobel prize dramatist, Luigi Pirandello, argued paradoxically that art was more real than life. From Medieval sacred representations and Renaissance comedies of manner to Modernist and contemporary drama, Italian writers and performers have used theater as a vehicle of entertainment, education, and social change. This course examines the influence of Italian theater on the nation's culture, identity, and society. Besides analyzing several 'classics' (Machiavelli's Mandragola, Goldoni's La Locandiera, Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of An Author), 'theater', 'drama', and the 'theatrical' in a wider sense will be explored. Why does Carnival continue to be a ritualistic event for Italians? What role do dramatic religious and secular processions still play? How has theater influenced visual media? How are gender and diversity reflected in Italian drama?

During the past two hundred years Jewish life has been profoundly affected by such forces and movements as emancipation, the Enlightenment, assimilation, Zionism, and the Holocaust. A primary focus of modern Israeli writers is the birth of the State of Israel and its ongoing struggles, internally as well as with its Arab neighbors. One of the main ways Hebrew literature captures these significant changes is through the use of biblical themes, images and archetypes which resonate through the generations. This course will examine the ways in which modern Hebrew literature enriches and brings deeper understanding of collective Jewish experiences and detects and shapes the reality of modern Israel.
