Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Peter Burleigh (p.burleigh@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt "Searoad," Ursula Le Guin's interwoven short stories located in an imagined Oregon coastal resort, is in my view one of the finest pieces of writing ever. The stories, rich in environment, personalities and identities, provoke a fantastical imagination of the ways in which location, space, period, time, and individual egos interweave as the fabric of community, and social & political relations. Bearing down in a different and self-consciously feminist direction is the poetry of Audre Lorde an unlikely contemporary of Le Guin's and in many ways equally concerned with how the world should be unstraightened. Finally, the position of Donna Haraway as a critic who undoes fatalism, determining that we are necessarily ensconced in a multiplicity of environments of which we are less than keepers and little more than interactants. Haraway also provides routes for us to determine ways in which we can keep the world odd and still make it our shared home, despite the encroaching devastating effects of environmental damage for which solely humans are responsible. As a triad, the three thinkers thus provoke different ways to essentially confront environment, time, space and selfhood.
Lernziele - Students will become familiar with the work of the three authors, especially with considering the particular feminist perspective that is articulated in these writers.
- Students will further their critical approach to text and to authorship, including inter-relating various primary texts in meaningful ways.
- Students will learn to consider formats and genres as not only form but as content
- Students will have the opportunity to write a Proseminar paper attached to the course.
