War and Change looks through the lenses of literature and visual culture at the major conflicts that shaped German history over the last four hundred years. Focusing on the Thirty Years’ War, the Napoleonic Wars, the Wars of German Unification, World War I, and World War II, we learn about the socially, politically, economically, culturally, and aesthetically transformative effects of each of these conflicts and explore them from the inside, through selections of literature and art, including Hans Jakob Christoph von Grimmelshausen’s Simplicissimus, Friedrich Schiller’s Wallenstein, and Erich Maria Remarque’s Im Westen nichts Neues. Students gain a broad understanding of Germany’s modern history and cultural traditions and have the opportunity to interrogate the phenomenon of war itself, examining the pivotal roles it has played in the German past and discovering the ways it has changed and remained the same over time.
