COLT 57.08 The Humanities and Human Rights

This course will focus on the deep connections between democracy and the role of the arts in the public sphere. Never has the public sphere been so challenged by the logic of an all-encompassing economic rationale. This course will cross disciplinary boundaries as we read literature with care and learn how to read literarily a wide array of theoretical and filmic texts. Our goal will be to travel from the theoretical to the particular and vice-versa, from the literary and filmic stories to the suprapersonal, to the wider polity and back to the personal, with texts that share a passion for change through recognizing our shared vulnerability and humanity, and bear witness to how the experience of crisis is also a gendered one.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
