GER 336 - The Thrill of Victory: Reading German Sports and Culture

Course Units: 1
(Also MLT 336   ) (Not Offered this Academic Year) This course traces the ways that Sports have reflected and influenced German culture through the 20th century, analyzing links between athleticism and conceptions of gender, nationhood, individuality and race set out in literary texts, films, and visual arts. Exploring notions of victory, physical perfection, and spectatorship, we will consider works by some of Germany’s greatest authors and artists, including Kafka, Schnitzler, Brecht, Riefenstahl, Kirschner and Handke.
