In this course, we will conduct a critical examination of life in pre- and post-reunification Germany with a focus on Berlin. The course is structured around readings and interactive classroom discussions of materials such as contemporary films, literary texts, songs and excerpts from various news media to increase your communicative competence in important areas of cultural life. There will be periodic student presentations. Active class participation is absolutely essential and integral to the nature of this course.
