Students are able to name interrelations of literary and cultural history with the example of representative authors, works and genres, especially from the 18th to the middle of the 19 th century. They are able to describe the processes of canonisation and reception. They can outline the interactions developments in society, literature and cultural history (e.g. gender-specific developments) and are able to independently analyse and interpret literary texts based on scientific standards. 

The Hungarian playwright and novelist Ödön von Horváth (1901-1938) is one of the most famous figures of German-language literature of the interwar period. We will focus on his major works, in particular his plays, including  'classics' of the critical folk play such as "Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald" and "Kasimir und Karoline".

introductory presentation, groupwork, lecture of primary and secondary sources, discussions
