Prerequisites: German 314 or consent of instructor.
What makes a family? How can the family support its members, and how do they construct a group identity? What factors make or a break a family? We will look at well-known, (mostly) recent Dutch novels and films, and discuss their portrayals of different kinds of wonderful and horrible families, and the many kinds of love, intrigue, mystery, and disaster which can occur. Three hours of discussion per week in English, one (small group) in Dutch; readings and written work in Dutch. For more information contact Prof. Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
