Fairy Tales

fairy-tales-jpeg.jpeg

GRMN 550/COMP 580 - Spring 2023 | Dr. Susanne Baackmann

Fairy Tales! We all seem to know them, but do we? This genre goes back to the period of early storytelling and captures the fears and desires of the powerful and the powerless, celebrating the magic and power of forces outside of Church and State. This course will explore the genre and development of the European fairy tale based on a wide variety of texts and films, such as early oral tales from France and Italy, the collection of tales compiled by the brothers Grimms, tales by Hans Andersen and Oscar Wilde, contemporary fairy tales, as well as modern American film adaptations. We will ask how the historical and social context has shaped the form and content of these tales, how express social and psychological conflicts, how they represent children, gender and the trope of the ‘happily ever after.’

 

BLEIERNE JAHRE: 
DEUTSCHER LINKSTERRORISMUS 

katja-schroeter-spring-2023GRMN 450.003  - Spring 2023 | Dr. Katja Schröter

In diesem Kurs wird es uns darum gehen, einen Einblick in die Geschichte dieser linksorientierten Terrororganisation zu gewinnen. Warum gab es so viele Sympathisanten und warum war die Faszination mit der RAF bis vor kurzem noch relativ unkritisch? Wir werden Ursprünge, Ursachen und Konsequenzen des Linksterrorismus in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland in den 70er Jahren untersuchen. Dabei werden im Mittelpunkt filmische Repräsentationen stehen. Wir werden ebenfalls journalistische Dokumente  und literarische Repräsentationen  dieser Krisenzeit und deren Folgen analysieren. Ein Exkurs in die Vorgeschichte des deutschen Terrorismus wird in das Thema einführen. 

 chin-343-flyer

CHIN/COMP/ENGL 343.001  - Spring 2023 | Dr. Ying Xu

This course will consist of 2 parts, with part 1 surveying Chinese women writers and the representation of women and virtue in traditional Chinese literature and part 2 examining the changing roles and consciousness of women in modern and contemporary China through the lens of feminism and the "New Women." The course will start with a perusal of Chinese mythology and classics in terms  of women's place in the creation of the universe and in the Chinese systems of structure and society. By examining various modes of representation, including poetry, essay, art, fiction, and drama, by women writers both in traditional and modern Chinese literature, the course aims at exploring new perspectives on issues such as gender studies, feminine, women's liberation, and family, and work.

La littérature  française tout courte 

fren-315-.jpg

FREN 315 - Spring 2023 | Dr. Stephen Bishop

This course is a survey of French literature from the Revolution to the present. The selections do not have a common theme but a common genre – the short story.We will look at a wide selection of authors who contributed to this relatively new literary form. In considering these short stories, we will ask questions like: Why did writers choose to express their ideas in this form? What are the characteristics of the genre? What are its advantages and disadvantages?When is a short story not a short story? Aside from these genre-centered questions, we will also discuss what the texts are trying to say, their relation to dominant literary movements, and how they represent various historical and social contexts. 

 

Advanced German Composition 

 dr-schroter-german-comp.-flyer.jpeg

GRMN 405.003 - Spring 2023 | Dr. Katja Schröter

In diesem Kurs wird es uns darum gehen, Ihre bereits sehr guten Deutschkenntnisse weiter zu verbessern.  Um dies zu erreichen, werden wir uns schwerpunktmäßig mit den schwierigeren Problemen der deutschen Grammatik anhand von verschiedenen Themen und Textsorten beschäftigen, die Sie zum einen auf einen Aufenthalt in Deutschland vorbereiten sollen (z.B. Lebenslauf, Bewerbung, Stipendienanträge) und zum anderen auf das weitere Studium (Essay, Kritik, Rezension, Debatte). This class is required for the German major.

 

 

 

 

 

19th Century Russian Culture and History Through Film

 19th-century-russian-cultr-meier-spring-2023

RUSS 339/FDMA 339/HIST 335 - Spring 2023 | Dr. Irina Meier

The course explores 19th-century Russia (‘The Golden Age’) through film, focusing particularly on films and written works that have addressed Russian history, culture, and society. We will discuss how these art forms reveal and construct the relationships between nobility and serfs, the social and political agendas of Russian intelligentsia, the emergence of the ‘Russian idea’, the attitudes and relationships with the West, the autocratic power of the tsars, and much more.

The fundamental purpose of this course is to enhance students’ critical thinking skills and deepen their understanding of native and foreign cultural developments and phenomena in the 19th century.

The films chosen for this course are all based on famous Russian classical works by Pushkin, Tolstoy, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, and others.

A beginning Mandarin Chinese course is designed to introduce the Mandarin sound system (“pinyin”), basic vocabulary, Chinese characters (either in Simplified or Traditional characters), and basic grammatical concepts and structures. In order to help beginners develop their communicative competence in the four basic skills, the 5Cs (Communication, Cultures, Comparisons, Connections, and Communities) will be integrated consistently into the content and exercises in the course. Credit for both this course and CHIN 1130 may not be applied toward a degree program. Meets University of New Mexico General Education Curriculum Area 6: Second Language.
