What was Dada? Why is Goethe's "Faust" so important? What was the relationship between "Bauhaus" and the Nazi regime? What is the "New German cinema?" Who were the German Expressionists? Was Kafka Czech or German? These and many more questions are addressed in courses in German language and literature at Brandeis.
