Description

War is often devastating to culture. To say nothing of the large loss of life it brings about, war disturbs the repose that is necessary for sustained thinking, the basic and essential habit of the intellectual life. And yet war enables unlikely encounters and alliances between former strangers and foes, recovers communities that had long been forgotten, and, in its very threat to peacetime expectations, opens doors to philosophical reflection on freshly imperiled and precious things—all that we had taken for granted.  In this course, we will explore and write about a wide range of works by past and present poets, fiction writers, graphic novelists, and filmmakers who alternately undergo war itself, reflect on its aftermath, and imagine political futures in its wake. We will consider relationships between World War II and our own historical present, drawing connections and distinctions between them. Experiences on the home front will be given as much attention as those on the battlefield.
 

Class Format:

This course is in person
