G418 Film and Popular Culture: 						
	
Prerequisite: G305/G306. The texts in this course have been selected
from German popular culture: film, television, popular literature, and
journalism.  While American influence is evident in many of these
media, there are still aspects that rely on a core of German Kulturgut
and reflect German history of the last century. During the course we
will attempt to tease out these essentially German elements from the
Americanization.

Texts:
	Wilhelm Busch, Heinrich Hoffmann, Max und Moritz/ Der
Struwwelpeter,
	Elke Heidenreich, Am Südpol denkt man, ist es heiß,
	Hera Lind, Der gemietete Mann
	Doris Dörrie, Der Mann meiner Träume,
	Bernhard Schlink, Liebesfluchten,

A course package of additional readings will also be required as well
as viewing of films and TV programs.
