“Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully. This course explores representations of Germany, its people and its language, and how these images have changed historically. We will explore contexts such as Tatort, German citizenship classes, German HipHop, the World Cup, the German language according to Mark Twain, and stereotypes of Germany in the Anglophone press.
In other words, the course looks at how German culture and society is viewed from an outside perspective, and compares Germany to other Anglophone nations.
The assessment requirement for this Spoken English course is a 15-20 minute oral language test at the end of the semester, with the grade to be added to the result from Written English.
The course is part of admission "ang311 Sprachpraxis Spoken/Written".
