COM LIT (S19)210  PHILOSOPHY AND ANARCHYMALABOU, C
In contemporary Western philosophy, destruction or deconstruction of metaphysics has been presented by prominent thinkers like Levinas, Derrida or Schürmann as the liberation of an an-archic way of thinking. The possibility of questioning and acting beyond the « archè », beyond the principle (commandment and beginning at the same time), has opened new perspectives in ontology and ethics. Levinas, for example, characterizes the relation to the Other in terms of « an-archic responsibility ». Interestingly, such an ontological and ethical anarchy has always been strictly distinguished from political anarchism.
COM LIT (S19)210  TRANSATLANTIC AVANTMAHIEUX, V.
This seminar will offer an overview of the various collective literary and artistic movements that surged in 1920s and 1930s Europe, Spanish-America, and Brazil. Course material will draw from literature, painting, photography and film. We will delve into the cultural and political implications of the avant-gardes in a transatlantic context, with emphasis on notions of center and periphery, imitation and parody, art and politics. Particular attention will be given to the movement of people, texts, art and ideas between France and Mexico. Reading knowledge of Spanish and French encouraged (translations will be made available when possible). Requirements:  Regular oral and online participation, one class presentation on selected readings, brief project presentation, final paper.
