An Austrian Journey: 1945 to the Present
June 23-27, 2003; 9:00-3:00 p.m.
We'll explore post-World War II Austria through the reconstruction of an independent Austrian nation, the socio-cultural changes in the 1960s and 1970s, and Austria's membership in the European Union in the 1990s. Participants will become familiar with Austria's literature, the situation of the Austrian media, and recent Austrian films in order to examine the question of Austrian identity at the turn of the twenty-first century. Gundolf Graml, from the Department of German, Scandinavian and Dutch at the University of Minnesota, teaches the course. This is a non-credit course; Professional credits and CEU's can be arranged. Registration fee: $125
Registration is due May 30, 2003. You can register online. The Summer Institutes are funded by a Title VI grant from the Department of Education.
