German 349: Age of Goethe

This course offered undergraduate students an in-depth introduction to the Age of Goethe, a period of enormous cultural renaissance that for many generations represented the very essence of modern German literature and culture.  Over the course of the semester we studied a diverse group of texts by Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749-1832) and his peers to sketch out the complex cultural landscape of the German lands in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.  The project for this course, Digital Goethe, is a digital humanities project that makes use of WordPress and the open source tools available at TAPOR, Bamboo-DiRT.  This course was taught by Professor Paul A. Youngman of the Department of German and Russian.
