This subject, taught in English, introduces students to some key texts about the “Jewish question” as well as to some important Jewish writers who explore the place of Jews in German-speaking Europe. Taking examples from the eighteenth through to the twentieth centuries, the subject explores themes such as Jewish emancipation, anti-Semitism and the characterisation of gender and sexuality of Jews in the German cultural context. Students will read literary texts by writers such as Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Moses Mendelssohn, Arthur Schnitzler and Franz Kafka, as well as critical and other literature. This subject enables students to appreciate the Jewish presence in and influence on German-speaking culture in Europe from the Enlightenment to modernism.
