Regarding the Pain of Others

AMS 321/GSS 296

Info tab content
This class will grapple with literary, visual and media texts that represent and theorize violence on a transnational field. We will consider the representation of pain as an industry and as a cultural phenomenon. Drawing from critical race theories, queer and psychoanalytic theories, and transnational feminist work, this course analyzes pain/violence narratives from a wide range of genres--film, essay, memoir, and policy--to explore how pain and violence is narrated and depicted and how such narrations become part of a collective consciousness that keeps systematic forms of oppression intact.
