Course Description

This course aims to think of the city not merely as a cluster of streets and buildings, but as a historical text. Like every city, Berlin does not live in the present alone, but consists of many historical layers that exist together and often react to one another in unpredictable ways. See firsthand how Berlin, in confronting its past, memorializes not only triumphs, but also failures.
