Zeit: Do 12-14
Ort: Neuphilologicum, 406
Beginn: 27.10.2016
Modernism in art is a transnational phenomenon; nevertheless one can detect national characteristics. In this seminar we will trace some of the expatriate American writers, such as Gertrude Stein, and some of those who stayed at home, such as W. C. Williams. We will focus on Modernism in the U.S. as characterized by race and ethnicity, as in the Harlem Renaissance for instance
