Description

Marlene Schaefer writes:”Loss, damage and rupture are the formative ground from which afterlives arise. And yet afterlives gesture at the fact that life, somehow, goes on.” In this course, we will explore what it is that ‘somehow, goes on,’ or what are the Afterlives after moments of extreme loss. Focusing on the survivor's memories of genocide and mass atrocities as well as the ensuing multi generational trauma, we will take a look at how does the afterlife of violence inform post-genocidal cultural productions. We will critically examine the theoretical works that inform the study of afterlives as well as interdisciplinary cultural productions that are the products of memory, trauma, forms of healings, and processing. The focus of the course will be the 20th century, herein we will discuss primarily representations of the Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan genocide, the Holocaust, and ethnic cleansing in former Yugoslavia, etc.

Course Requirements:

The main requirement for this course will be a research paper to be submitted through canvas.

Intended Audience:

International Studies Majors and Minors.

Class Format:

Our discussion will be synchronous. Short lecture modules will be available asynchronously and in combination with assigned readings and films form the basis for our discussion.
