Featured Course of the Week: Infamous Lovers (GER 330)

Picture of Tristan and Isolde

GER 330 is a new course exploring the concept of requited, passionate, erotic, transgressive love as it changes over time. We use a masterpiece of world literature, Tristan and Isolde, as a touchstone for interpreting more recent works from German-speaking lands. Taking this course will give students deeper insight into contemporary, often conflicting understandings of love.

Online. Taught in English. No prerequisites.

Instructor: Prof. Ann Marie Rasmussen.

For more information about this new course, read our interview with the course instructor.
