Cursusdoelen
Students will be given an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of cultural memory studies and to historical fiction as a cultural genre. They will acquire knowledge of the specific cases; and develop conceptual tools for analysing the interplay between stories, history and politics, as well as between fact and fiction, knowledge and norms.
Inhoud
This course provides a follow-up to Banned Books (bl. 1). It examines the ways in which literature contributes to public debate about the meaning of the past. In particular, we will examine the role played by literature and film in dealing with divisive and painful memories.  Which cultural memories dominate our image of the past, and which events are suppressed? How does literature interact with other media in bringing marginalised stories to light? And in re-imagining the boundaries of nations?  We will address these questions through the comparative study of novels and movies dealing with civil war (Spain, Northern Ireland) and with the legacy of colonialism (France/Algeria, Netherlands-Indonesia).

This course is the second course in specialization Literature in conflict
