The Personal & the Political
If one of the ideas behind the famous 1960s statement “the personal is political” is to suggest that how we conduct ourselves in our private lives can affect structures of power in society at large, the reverse is also true. The political/social/cultural systems in which we live affect, if not determine, the kinds of relationships we have with other people. In this seminar we will explore some of these reciprocities in works of fiction by Graham Greene, Milan Kundera, Virginia Woolf, Chimamanda Adichie, E. M. Forster, with some complementary readings in political theory. 3 hrs. sem.
