Spring Course Abroad: On the Trail of German Literature

Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1450 and ever since German literature has flourished, to the point where many German authors have entered the world's literary canon and won eight Nobel Prizes. This tour will expose participants to the locales where these writers were active and about which they wrote. From the Grimm Folktales to 19th-Century Realism to 20th-Century short story writers, and from Berlin, Germany's capital, to Weimar, home of German Classicism and a city associated with such well-known authors as Goethe, Schiller and Nietzsche, this course and its associated tour will cover a range of important authors and topics in German literary history.
