Spring 2015 not offered
This course will offer a critical perspective on literature, psychology, and art during the period of Viennese modernism (1898-1938). The focus will be on key works by major figures--Freud's "A Fragment of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria (Dora)," 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 discourses dominated the cultural production of the era.
