Term: FA 2018
Subject: RC Languages (RCLANG)
Department: LSA Residential College
With permission of instructor.
Advisory Prerequisites:
Proficiency test.
May be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

In this course, students will read, discuss and write about a range of texts (visual, literary, and performance-oriented) from 20th and 21st Century artists and media that provide insights into identity issues in Germany. Writers we will study will include, but not be limited to: Akin, Canetti, Heckmanns, Loher, Mayenburg, Meister & Senoçak. There will be a focus on improving all four skills in this course: reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension. Assignments will explore the intersection of text, image, and performance.

Course Requirements:

Students will be assessed on the basis of attendance and active participation, written essays, oral reflections and short response papers, performance of scenes from 21st C. drama, an in-class essay (or performance) midterm exam, and a longer final essay exam as a take home assignment at the end of the semester. Students will keep a portfolio of work and will create a small book, an altered book, a performance piece or a film with guidance from the instructor.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for students who have recently passed the RC German proficiency exam, e.g., in Winter 2016. Others may be admitted, space permitting, with permission of the instructor.
