Central Europe: An Idea and its Literature

RUSS 1848 S01 [CRN: 26391]

Today’s Central Europe has been defined by historical events from the collapse of the Habsburg Monarchy (1918) to the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989), to the recent war in Ukraine and the crisis of European identity. Focusing on literately works from this multicultural and multilingual world—not neglecting their artistic qualities—we will address the question: How does the Central European experience help us to understand the current European cultural, social and political tensions, as well as its aspirations and the perennial question of its unity? Authors included: J.Roth, Musil, Schulz, Canetti, Gombrowicz, Cioran, Hrabal, Kiš, Kundera, H.Müller. WRIT
