Professor Alexander Pichugin

In German. 

The course examines images of the hero and of the monster as reflected in literary and artistic representations. The course material is taken from German-language literature, art, music, and cinema of different time periods. The course discussion encompasses discrete manifestations of combat between good and evil at different levels and focuses on the conceptual stability of the heroic amid the omnipresence of evil.

300-level German-language courses open to students who have either successfully completed German 232 or will be simultaneously enrolled in either German 231 or 232.
