At the beginning of the last century, Vienna was the capital of the second largest empire in Europe and exercised a remarkable influence on world culture through its achievements in art, music, literature, architecture, design, psychology, politics and city planning.  Such figures as Sigmund Freud, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler, Alma Schindler, Oscar Kokoschka, Gustav Klimt, Arthur Schnitzler and Theodore Herzl were all contemporaries who lived in close proximity, influencing one another and being influenced and inspired in turn.  In this interdisciplinary course, students will read the literature, hear the music, view the paintings and study the architecture of this city that in many ways gave birth to the modern world in which we live.
