Psychosis of Occupation in the Czech Lands

CZCH 0610B S01 [CRN: 24135]

Discussion of the Occupation period during WWII. The course is built around a Czech New Wave classic film about an eccentric director of a crematorium in Prague, who turns into a fanatic collaborator under the terror and demagogy of the regime. We will also read excerpts from the original literary text on which the film was based, and work with the Czech National Corpus. Separate language tasks given to students of two proficiency levels (2nd, 3rd year). Conducted in Czech. The course is for students who completed CZCH0410 or the equivalent. Enrollment limited to 18.
