German Culture

5 ECTs / Semester / Portuguese

The seminar aims at introducing the student to the identity formation processing modern and contemporary Germany. This thus also conveys why culture has become a new paradigm for the 21st century and the grounds across which political, social and religious conflicts are waged. Furthermore, the seminar strives to enable students to contextualize, interpret and critique the object of study and place it comparatively within the larger body of European and global cultures. The seminar further develops intercultural competencies arising from a comparative approach and contribute to fostering a critical reasoning supported by informed academic arguments.
