Course Content (Syllabus)
The thematic field capitalism and money does not appear for the first time in the literature of the 20th and 21st century. Money is already in the bible a trope that should not be underestimated. In this seminar, we are going to examine literary works from the Storm and Stress era up until now, which all have one thing in common: the narratology of money. Among other topics, the following appear in the narration: consumption and indebtedness, gambling, work and unemployment, capitalism and global financial crisis, anti-Semitism, precarious working conditions, flexibility and mobility in everyday working life. The description of the economic living conditions serves ultimately in all texts the social criticism. But how far does this criticism go? And how are the economic circumstances poetic presented? In order to achieve a better understanding of these issues, we are going to use and study texts from the scientific fields cultural studies, economy and history.
