Theodor Adorno has famously stated that writing poetry after the Holocaust is a barbaric act. This subject examines the very crisis of representation that has been brought about by the Holocaust for different generations of German and Austrian writers and filmmakers from the immediate post-war period until today. The main focus of the course will be on questions of memory (and forgetting), which run like a thread through all works of VergangenheitsbewÃƒÂ¤ltigung, i.e. coming to terms with the past. Theories of memory will also allow students to explore how the different subject position of the writers and filmmakers in question informed their exploration of the topic.
A 10-minute class presentation 15% (due during the semester), a 1-hour mid-semester test 25% and an essay of 2500 words for third year students, 3500 words for fourth year students 60% (due at the end of the semester).
A subject reader will be available at the University Bookshop.
