Instructor: Dr. Joseph D. Rockelmann
This online, 3-credit hour graduate course examines German cinema from the Weimar Republic to the present. In addition to viewing and carefully studying films, we consider the historical, political, economic, and social backgrounds that shaped these works and their reception. In some cases, the films are documentaries, in other cases they may be based on stories. In all events, there is important life experience to be learned from which we can advance global understanding. In addition to discovering the cultural and historical background to cinematographic constructions, students will design a lesson plan that appropriately incorporates course material into the L2 German classroom.
Taught in German. Request the syllabus.
