Beyond Crisis: Contemporary Greece in ContextCourse Cancelled

Karen Renee Emmerich

Back to "Fall 2016" courses

This course will offer a comparative approach to the cultural production of contemporary Greece,investigating the “Greek crisis” (including the current refugee crisis) through literature and film of the past decade, as well as writings drawn from history, anthropology, political science, and economics, contemporary news sources, political and cultural blogs. Students will face the comparatist’s challenge of encountering not only an unfamiliar literature as it unfolds in a time of crisis, but also an unfamiliar culture, history, and society, mediated not just by linguistic translation but by market forces and media spin.
