German 42. Topics in German Studies in Translation. Taught at 2A by Michael McGillen. Modernism and the Avant-Garde: Frankfurt School Cultural Theory. Writers of the Frankfurt School (Kracauer, Benjamin, Adorno, Horkheimer) have shaped our understanding of the impact of early 20th-century "modernism" in literature and the arts. Examining their cultural theory alongside avant-garde literature, art, film, and photography, the course will address the Frankfurt School's understanding of mass culture in urban modernity; its insights into the nature of perception under the conditions of new technological media; and its reflections on the relationship between art and politics. Conducted in English. Open to all classes. Dist: SOC. WCULT: W.
