FYS: What is a University?
AS.001.126 (01)

Readings and discussion in English. Many of the issues we grapple with today regarding higher education have a long history dating back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when the first modern universities were founded in Germany. What is the relation of research to teaching? How do we define scholarship? What is the difference between professional training and academic study? How do we distinguish secondary education from higher learning? What obligations does the university have vis-à-vis the state, which often finances it in whole or in part? What protections does the state owe the university when it pursues research that runs counter to the interests of state? What purpose does the ivory tower serve in an age in which higher learning is no longer limited to the classroom but is widely available (via books, radio, television, the internet)? In this class we will explore the rich literature from the nineteenth century on the idea of the university and the value of learning. We will conclude the course with an examination of the German roots of Johns Hopkins. Cross-listed with History

Wassermänner Und Meerjungfrauen
AS.213.377 (01)

Schriftsteller*innen haben immer wieder Geschichten von Wassermenschen erzählt. Was für eine Faszination birgt das Leben im Wasser? Was ist an diesen Zwitterwesen— Männer mit Schwimmhäuten, Frauen mit Fischschwänzen—so interessant? Was geht verloren, wenn solche Amphibien sich für immerauf dem Land einrichten? Tatsächlich sind alle Menschen Wasserwesen— zu einem Großteil aus Wasser bestehend. Aber dieses Lebenselement wird zunehmend gefährdet und gefährlich. Was nun? Wir werden literarische Texte aus der Romantik, Moderne und Gegenwart sowie ein paar Filme analysieren, um diesen Fragen nachzugehen

Modern Orpheus: Rilke and Celan
AS.213.630 (01)

In the Sonnets to Orpheus Rilke proclaims, “Singing is being” [Gesang ist Dasein], in an affirmation of the life attained through art that Nietzsche spoke of in The Birth of Tragedy. This is not an individual life but the whole of being, in which poet and reader share, provided they surrender to the movement of the song, the rhythm of its words. Celan’s halting rhythm could not be more different than Rilke’s, and yet his poetry also invites the reader to surrender to the work, albeit not to the words but to the wounds it opens within them, to the silence it exposes in speech. This course will consider the Orphic tradition and its aftermath as seen in Rilke’s and Celan’s work. Special attention will be paid to the status of the unsayable (das Unsägliche for Rilke, das Unsagbare for Celan) in both writer’s poetry, prose and translations, especially from the French.

Panorama of German Thought
AS.211.265 (01)

This course introduces students to major figures and trends in German literature and thought from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. We will pay particular attention to the evolution of German political thought from the Protestant Reformation to the foundation of the German Federal Republic after WWII. How did the Protestant Reformation affect the understanding of the state, rights, civic institutions, and temporal authority in Germany? How did German Enlightenment thinkers conceive of ethics and politics or morality and rights? How do German writers define the nation, community, and the people or das Volk? What is the link between romanticism and nationalism? To what degree is political economy, as developed by Marx, a critical response to romanticism? How did German thinkers conceive of power and force in the wake of World Wars I and II? What are the ties that bind as well as divide a community in this tradition? We will consider these and related questions in this course through careful readings of selected works.

Labor in Theory, Literature, and Art
AS.211.307 (01)

This seminar examines some of the ways we define, represent, and think about the concept of labor in capitalism. We will analyze and compare a wide variety of texts (literary, visual, and theoretical) that embody different, often contradictory, notions of the work we do, why we do it, and how it affects us. As we investigate different types of work—productive and unproductive, physical & intellectual, factory & office—a few of the questions we will ask are: What methods have writers and artists used to depict labor in the 20th and 21st centuries? How is labor stratified along racial and gender lines? Is it possible to imagine a post-work society? The course curates a range of cultural artifacts (short stories, manifestos, novel excerpts, visual art, and film) that employ aesthetic strategies like irony, humor, absurdity, and duration to represent the dynamics of labor in capitalism. Theoretical texts then provide varied conceptual viewpoints from which to compare, contrast, and synthesize our impressions and interpretations of art and literary works. By the end of the semester, we will have traced a trajectory of labor in capitalism from the early 20th century to our own strange and precarious present.

Existentialism in Literature and Philosophy
AS.213.374 (02)

What does it mean to exist, and to be able to reflect on this fact? What is it mean to be a self? This course explores the themes of existentialism in literature and philosophy, including the meaning of existence, the nature of the self, authenticity and inauthenticity, the inescapability of death, the experience of time, anxiety, absurdity, freedom and responsibility to others. It will be examined why these philosophical ideas often seem to demand literary expression or bear a close relation to literary works. Readings may include writings by Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky, Heidegger, Rilke, Kafka, Simmel, Jaspers, Buber, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Camus, and Daoud.

Husserl’s Ideas: An Introduction to Phenomenology
AS.213.626 (01)

The first volume of Husserl’s Ideas I (1913) provides an overarching picture of the phenomenological method that came to define much twentieth-century German and French thought. This course will consider the foundational concepts introduced in this volume (eidetic analysis, intentionality, bracketing, correlationism, time consciousness, the natural attitude and the phenomenological reduction) as well as responses to them by Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, Heidegger and others. We will also consider Husserl’s later efforts to incorporate history, other minds, and even that which is other-than-mind into his idealist system.

Playtime…auf deutsch
AS.213.315 (01)

Taught in German. German discussions of theater have largely focused on Greek tragedy and how this classical genre can be adapted for the modern stage. Yet comedies (or Lustspiele) have played an equally important role in German cultural productions and discourse from the early modern figure of the buffoon (Hanswurst) to reflections on puppet theater and to larger philosophical and anthropological inquiries into play. In this course we will read several theoretical texts on comedy and play by Aristotle, Huizinga, Kant, Schiller, and Kleist before turning to various comedies by Lessing, Kotzebue, Kleist, Brentano, Droste-Hülshoff, Büchner and Brecht. The culmination of the class will be a theatrical production.

Poetry and Philosophy
AS.213.623 (01)

This course will trace the tensions, antagonisms, and collaborations between poetry and philosophy as distinctive but fundamental expressions of human thought and experience. We will engage poetry as a form of artistic expression that compliments, completes, or challenges other forms of knowledge, and consider the range of philosophy's responses to poetry and poetics. Readings will include works by philosophical poets and poetic philosophers including Hölderlin, Schlegel, Rilke, Bachmann, Celan, Stevens, Heidegger, Gadamer, Adorno, Benjamin, Merleau-Ponty, Valéry, Wittgenstein, and Agamben.

Texte sehen, Bilder lesen
AS.213.314 (01)

Taught in German. This course examines the intersections of literature and the visual arts. We will read texts by writers influenced by artists and explore art that mobilizes text; and we will examine the relationships between text and image in both illustrated books and artworks. We will also consider the visual dimensions of texts themselves, asking how texts sometimes come to function imagistically or even as images in their own right. We will work across different periods of literary and visual production, and specific topics will include: theories of text and image; manuscript illumination and early printing; typography; concrete poetry; artists’ books; text art; and graphic novels. The course will include visits to the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Walters Art Museum, Special Collections at the Sheridan Library, and a letterpress shop.
