Primary Instructor:

Time grounds and conditions human existence. We often think of the temporal dimension as a force external to us. Yet humans also make, measure, or communicate time. In turn, time organizes us, individually as well as collectively. How do we come to live in and experience temporality? Through a series of discussions, practical exercises, and readings in German—poetry, short stories, essays, history, etc.—we will investigate the many meanings of time for us.

Class Format:

Taught in German.
