Robert Musil seminar

July 1, 2015

I will be giving a graduate seminar on Robsrt Musil (German 243) in Fall 1015. Texts will be read in German and discussed in English. Undergraduates with good reading abilities in German are welcome  to apply for acceptance (email me at We will read several of Musil's extraordinary short narratives ("Vereinigungen" and "Drei Frauen," and will then begin to familiarize ourselves with his great unfinished novel Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften. I am working now on innovative ways to cope with this substantial, but thoroughly  fascinating material.
