Prerequisite:  G305 or 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.  The course will be conducted in German.
