ECS 349 - Texts and Images of the Holocaust

Description
In an effort to encompass the variety of responses to what is arguably the most traumatic event of modern Western experience, we explore the Holocaust as transmitted through documents, testimony, journals, memoirs, creative writing and cinema. In our study of works, reflecting diverse languages, cultures, genres, and points of view, we focus on issues of bearing witness, collective vs individual memory, and the nature of radical evil Throughout we are mindful of tensions between ethical and aesthetic imperatives, and the perils of representation itself, when faced with the unrepresentable. Weekly film showings in addition to seminar. Reading averages about 150-250 pages per week (occasionally more, and sometimes less). Attendance at weekly film showings (Monday evenings). Brief weekly comments for discussion; Midterm paper, film journal, and optional final essay. Open choice of paper/essay topics, in accordance with individual students' interests.
