GRMT 167 SC - Metropolis: Imagining the City


Whether pictured as labyrinth, stage set, utopian pleasure-dome or gigantic living room, the urban landscape has played a crucial role in the attempt of 20thcentury writers and artists to come to terms with modernity. The course will move from the squares of 19th-century Berlin, the grid of Manhattan, to the malls and theme parks of Los Angeles, using fiction (Poe, Kafka, Wm. Gibson), film (Lang, Wenders, R. Scott), essays (Eco, Didion), and urban theory (Sennett, Choay) to investigate how changes in the perception of the city reflect the ways modernity sees itself. Cross listed as HMSC 167  SC. This course is taught in English.

Prerequisite(s): For admission to literature and culture courses, GERM 044  or the equivalent is normally required. Cross listed as HMSC 167  SC.
Course Credit: 1.0
