Semester Frühjahrsemester 2019
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Christiane Schlote (christiane.schlote@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Escape, exile and migration belong to some of mankind's oldest experiences and are, in fact, considered as "the 'normal' state of affairs" (Essed, Frerks & Schrijvers) in the field of migration studies. As such, it is hardly surprising that from Virgil's epic poem "The Aeneid" to more recent 'refugee fiction' such as Khaled Hosseini's "The Kite Runner" (2003) and Dave Eggers's "What is the What" (2006), figures of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers have emerged as some of literature's most important characters. In this seminar, we will discuss literary and dramatic representations of refugeehood, migration and displacement and their inscription of different refuge(e) spaces. Drawing on the (field)work of anthropologists, sociologists and urban geographers, we will explore the constructed nature of concepts such as 'border', 'dis/location', 'home' and 'refuge(e)' and further examine the commodification of refugees in political and cultural discourses.
Lernziele Students will be acquainted with key concepts in migration and refugee studies and the politics of representation in 'refugee fiction and drama'.
Literatur Students should acquire the following texts: Chris Cleave, "The Other Hand" (2008; published as "Little Bee" in Canada and the US) and Sunjeev Sahota, "The Year of the Runaways" (2015). Copies of Cleave and Sahota will be available at the 'Labyrinth' bookstore, Nadelberg 17, Basel. Theoretical and additional primary texts will be made available on ADAM.
