Second part: "Gesellschaft und Literatur": We will deal with the period from the end of WWI to WWII. The focus is on the social dimensions of the literature of the "Weimarer Republik", the influence of the consequences of WOI on German society and culture. Through lectures and the treatment of selected texts and films, the students get a varied picture of the time. Finally, the post-WII cultural environment is also outlined and explored: language skepticism, "LTI" and "Kahlschlagliteratur" are addressed. The students receive an introduction to film analysis versus text analysis.
