Module overview

Germany has had a long tradition of immigration and is one of the most multi-cultural countries in Europe today. We will examine the impact of diverse immigration movements on recent German history and notions of German identity. This includes examining broad developments of post-war immigrations, exploring some of the legacies of German colonialism and addressing contemporary issues and debates. The course puts emphasis on working with a range of scholarly, media and aesthetic texts (including films) and students will continue to hone their critical reading, reflection and research skills.
