Course Description

Charles Sealsfield (1793-1864) was a German-American author who wrote in English and German. Both his non-fiction and his fiction are characterized by the diversity of 19th century U.S. society and culture, which are represented in colorful narratives and by an exceptionalist position of the country in the international system. This seminar will focus on a novelistic cycle told by a young slaveholder who seems to be very happy in his profession. At times, however, he has trouble sleeping.
Participants will get the opportunity to present at the Sealsfield-Symposium of the International Charles Sealsfield Society which will take place in Dortmund from 23-25 September 2021 (Covid be willing). Participation in the symposium will also provide attractive opportunities for project work although the symposium is not a requirement for participation in the course.
