JWST 3681 - Refugees in German Culture Course uri icon



  • This interdisciplinary course introduces the diversity of refugee migration in German culture through artistic and cultural "texts," including those created by or in collaboration with refugees (film, comic journalism, literature, blogs, hashtag campaigns, music, etc). These texts are discussed in relationship to theories of racism, precarity, and biopolitics together and contextualized by work from other disciplines. This interdisciplinary course is methodologically informed by the theory and practice of cultural studies. Recommended restriction: for students with sophomore standing or higher. Same as IAFS 3681 and GRMN 3681.
