HS Other Voices

Inhalt

This seminar will address ‘Other Voices’: the subaltern, the colonized, the animal. The theoretical framework will involve close readings of excerpts from key texts from the fields of post-colonial studies, ethics, animal studies, environmental philosophy and feminism. By working through these texts together in the form of guided reading, we will focus on our own practices of reading, reflecting on expectations, positionings and omissions.

Students will have to conduct a guided reading session (in lieu of a presentation) and submit a term paper in order to obtain credit for this class. Great emphasis is placed on a lively discussion culture.

The first session will require that all students have familiarized themselves with the themes of the texts from the required text list – you do not have to have finished reading them all, but you should have a rough idea what they are about.

A reader will be provided in the seminar, and the further reading list will be extended throughout the semester. Attending my lecture this semester (Anglophone Texts and Contexts) is highly recommended.
