Political Violence

Political Violence, Memory and Cultural Representation
In this course we will study cultural and human responses to the violence of genocide politics and the political repression of terrorist state in Latin America. Central to the theoretical and critical corpus of the course is the multidisciplinary work of scholars writing in response to historical violence, with questions regarding social trauma, the links between mourning and memory, and the social and cultural role of artistic creation. In order to introduce students to the complex issues of memory and violence in its subjective and social dimension, we will analyze a variety of sources, such as literature, film, art, oral history, journalism, and popular music. This course is taught in English
