This fall, we invite you for a challenge: Dr. Martin Mittelmeier, editor and lecturer at the University of Cologne, and Rutgers' own Professor Nicola Behrmann will tutor a bilingual online reading group. Together with a group of undergraduate students from the University of Cologne, we will read and discuss Thomas Mann’s novel Doktor Faustus. Das Leben des deutschen Tonsetzers Adrian Leverkühn (1947).
Everyone on all levels of German language skills is welcome: undergraduate and graduate students; the native speaker as well as the student who just started learning German. Nine consecutive sessions between October and December. Roughly 80 pages to read per week. Not for credit.
Please email Prof. Behrmann at
This reading group will meet on the following Fridays: 10/8, 10/15, 10/22, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12, 11/19, 12/3, 12/10.
