ENG 2228 - Scar Tissue

Credits: 4
This course explores the intersections of history and literature, focusing on the literary representations of traumatic, repressed or controversial historical events. The focus of the course is on East-Central European developments of modern history, especially the manifold victimization suffered by ordinary citizens during and in the aftermath of World War II. A brief introduction to the theoretical issues of cultural and literary representations of trauma is followed by detailed discussions of literary works and films dealing with traumatic historical experiences. While most primary texts are selected from East-Central European literature, the secondary literature also provides a more global and general perspective on the role of literature in the representation of history and issues of cultural memory.
Offered at the Budapest campus.
