Ethnic Cultures of North America (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 14.10.2024 - 31.01.2025 | C 5.310 Seminarraum

Inhalt: In this seminar we will explore the different ethnic cultures of Canada and the United States which differ greatly from western thought in both their perception of reality and their assumption about literary creations. We will look at experiences of the indigenous populations (Native Americans, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) as well as recent immigrants to the U.S., most nobably from Mexico. Our seminar will not only be an exploration of groups which have historically been pushed to the periphery of our cultural awareness, but also a contribution to the dialogue that has been challenging discourses both in the United States and Canada for the past decades.

History, Arts, and Culture of the United States (GHR) (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 14.10.2024 - 31.01.2025 | C 5.310 Seminarraum

Inhalt: Since the United States is one of the most diverse places in the world with a vibrant political culture, an often controversial religious vigor, and an influential media and arts industry, in this seminar, we will approach our topics not only from a socio-cultural and historical point-of-view, but also listen to mainstream and marginalized voices that – encouraged by the social movements of the 1960s – enriched both the political debates and the literatures of North America.
