GER 160D2 – Gesundheit!: Health and Well-Being in German-Speaking Cultures
  • Tier 1 Traditions and Cultures
  • Honors Contract
  • In this course, students critically examine representations of health and well-being (e.g., bodies, (dis-)ability and care) in literature, film, drawings, photography, and other popular media with a particular focus on German language choices, history, and culture. Whether drawing on examples of bodies as sites of pain in the Middle Ages or the logic of homeopathy as "like can cure like", students will analyze performances of "healthy" bodies in the German-speaking world and interrogate how language is used in these contexts from the past to the present. Taught in English.
