How do we confront violence and catastrophic histories of others? How do we understand the politics of commemoration and denial of certain violent episodes when the ‘other/s’ has been constructed as an enemy or an inferior? The readings trace the ways in which the Euro-American worlds have forged their other: the native, the savage, the black, the Semite, the colonized, the Orient, the underdeveloped...etc. Following this, we look at how such categorizations have informed the way history is written and the past violence is remembered/forgotten. The course will therefore pay a particular attention to the role power plays in history writing as well as the culture wars around competitive memories around the construction of museums. To this end, we navigate each week’s topic through artworks, as well as a visit to the Holocaust Memorial and the African American History Museum in Detroit. Painting credit: Boris Taslitzky "Riposte" (1951)
