Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

While members of the social and cultural elite of the American South in the 18th and 19th centuries cultivated close links with Europe by regular visits to its historic sites and art treasures, the prolonged economic depression during Reconstruction and afterwards impeded the transatlantic exchange with the Old World. As the advocates of the New South pushed for industrialization, the defenders of traditional Southern values insisted on the affinity of their region to the Old World, the destination of many expatriates also from the South. As the social backwardness of the segregated South continued, writers and other intellectuals from the region flocked to Continental Europe where the political crises leading up to World War II caused them to confront important ethical questions and to revise their own attitudes. In the era of the Cold War there were further opportunities for travel and for inspiration to adopt and adapt the "international theme".

Literatur

Among the texts to be analyzed in the seminar will be poems reflecting transatlantic travel and experience (by John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate), a play by Lillian Hellman (The Searching Wind, 1944) and short fiction by authors such as Thomas Wolfe, Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, William Styron, as well as by Langston Hughes and a collection of stories by Elizabeth Spencer (The Light in the Piazza, and Other Italian Stories).
Participants in the seminar should purchase a copy of the collection of stories by Elizabeth Spencer and a Reader which will contain the other texts to be studied in the seminar.
A number of topics will be announced shortly and students can choose from a list and can thus register for the course before Christmas and in January.
