  Enrollment limited to 30
  This course will examine the rich and varied cinema produced in the Federal Republic of Germany between 1960 and the mid-1980s, otherwise known as New German Cinema. Concurrent with screenings of films by directors such as Wim Wenders, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Doris Dörrie, we will consider the political and historical events that influenced the film industry and aesthetic at this time in Germany. We will also trace the history of film financing, distribution and exhibition in post-WWII West Germany. The themes examined will include, but are not limited to, the relationship between public and private, past and present, the relationship between history and gender, the "German" and the other, the search for a national identity. On completion of this course, students will be able to understand (1) the diverse aesthetic of New German Cinema films, (2) the institutional influences in the development of New German Cinema, (3) the history of West German after 1949, and (4) the different conceptualizations of German identity in different historical and political moments.

3466 LACS-272-01 Mafia 1.00 LEC Alcorn,John MWF: 12:00PM-12:50PM GW - L GLB2

  In contemporary societies there is an intimate contest between two kinds of social order: The rule of law and criminal organization. A remarkable instance may be found in the workings and metamorphoses of the Mafia. From its origins in Sicily, an agrarian society on the periphery of Europe, the Mafia has acquired intercontinental dimensions and a grip on high politics and finance capital. This shadowy phenomenon has been approached and explained in very different ways by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It has also been the subject of literature and film. We shall discuss outstanding examples of each approach and treatment. The purposes of the course are to make sense of the Mafia, to explore a basic problem of social order and to compare the different styles of reasoning and representation that characterize the various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Course requirements: seminar reports, several short papers, and full attendance and participation. (Listed as both LACS 272 and ITAL 272.)

  This course focuses on representations of Paris through the eyes of a variety of 19th and 20th-century authors. This course integrates the experience of study abroad and with the analysis of texts that evoke different aspects of urban life. We will begin with a brief history of the city of Paris and specific features of its transformation under Haussmann. Urban icons such as Baudelaire's flâneur, working girls, (grisettes) and ragpickers (chiffonniers) hold an important place in visual and textual representations by the following authors: Charles Baudelaire, Honoré Balzac, Delphine Girardin, George Sand, Jules Verne, Walter Benjamin, André Breton and Colette.We begin with texts by Baudelaire to understand the concept of the flâneur. This becomes an important and uniquely urban phenomenon in 19th-century French culture. The flâneur implies either bohemian or bourgeois social status; however we also analyze texts about women navigating the city, and ragpickers (chiffonniers) who are immortalized in the poetry of Baudelaire and photographs of Atget. Authors include: Charles Baudelaire, Honoré Balzac, Céleste Mogador, George Sand, Jules Verne, Walter Benjamin, Louis Aragon, and Colette.

  In this course we will examine the relationship between history and film in Spain, one of the world's most important film-producing countries. Until quite recently, cinematic production there was marked by a general tendency to promote the primacy of Castilian culture and Church-derived social mores through the production of historicist narratives. Since the country's transition to democracy, a much more plural and heterodix cinematic tradition has taken root in the country. While still very much engaged with history, this new tradition promotes a broader view of the country's religious, sexual and linguistic heritage.

  What makes a novel "Latin American"? In this course we will study novels produced in Latin America in the last three decades that deal with topics, characters and settings that have little relation to the immediate reality of the continent. By questioning the imperative for national allegory assigned to the novel from the periphery of the West, we will explore notions of referentiality, language and representation and we will try to work out the geopolitics of the genre in the context of globalization, translation and world literature. Among others, we will read works by César Aira, Mario Bellatin, Bernardo Carvalho, Chico Buarque and Santiago Gamboa.

  In contemporary societies there is an intimate contest between two kinds of social order: The rule of law and criminal organization. A remarkable instance may be found in the workings and metamorphoses of the Mafia. From its origins in Sicily, an agrarian society on the periphery of Europe, the Mafia has acquired intercontinental dimensions and a grip on high politics and finance capital. This shadowy phenomenon has been approached and explained in very different ways by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It has also been the subject of literature and film. We shall discuss outstanding examples of each approach and treatment. The purposes of the course are to make sense of the Mafia, to explore a basic problem of social order and to compare the different styles of reasoning and representation that characterize the various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Course requirements: seminar reports, several short papers, and full attendance and participation. (Listed as both LACS 272 and ITAL 272.)
