Viennese Modernism
GRST 381
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 382

This course will offer a critical perspective on literature, psychology, architecture, and painting during the period of Viennese Modernism (1898-1938). The focus will be on key works by major figures--Freud's THREE ESSAYS ON SEXUALITY, Kraus's aphorisms, Schnitzler's LA RONDE, Klimt's "University Paintings," Kokoschka's and Schiele's portraits--and especially on analogies and interactions among them. A major theme of the course will be the way in which sexual discourse dominated the cultural production of the era.
