GRMN 333 - Survey: Nature, Place and Heimat: the German idea of Home

Fall, Spring (3) Staff Prerequisite(s): GRMN 205  or GRMN 206  or consent of instructor

“Heimat “or “home” is a key concept in German-speaking culture, and one which, it is claimed, cannot be translated. This course will explore what Heimat can mean and how it is constructed. Themes will include provincial life, eco-literature and the German relationship to the forest, as well as the particularly German genres of Heimat literature, poetry and film.
