Fall
Year: 
2016

Humanities Arts Cultural Stu
Course Number: 
0222
Institution: 
Hampshire College
An introduction to core debates in literary theory focused on four moments or movements critical to modern and postmodern literature: Marxism and historical materialism; post-structuralism; psychoanalysis; and postcolonial critique. Close readings of theoretical texts - and, on occasion, the literary texts they analyze and discuss - will allow us to explore a range of different questions that theorists of literature have asked about both the formal, aesthetic, rhetorical, or technical and the cultural, social, political, and historical dimensions of literature from the late 19th century to the present. Possible readings in Walter Benjamin, Judith Butler, Jacques Derrida, Fredric Jameson, Sigmund Freud, Edouard Glissant, Jacques Lacan, Achille Mbembe, Fred Moten, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and Gayatri Spivak.

ST-ConstitutnBegin/End of Life

Semester: 
Fall
Year: 
2016
Subject Name: 
Legal Studies
Course Number: 
397AM
Institution: 
UMass Amherst
Few legal and political issues are more complex than a woman's reproductive rights and the rights of individuals to decide about medical treatment at the end of life. The Supreme Court has frequently ruled on these "culture war" issues; yet this incendiary mix of law and politics goes on. This course examines the influence which the Court has had upon these conflicts over individual autonomy, religious freedom, and the nature of the doctor-patient relationship. The course also discusses the ways that these political and cultural conflicts have shaped constitutional law. Though we will closely examine several important constitutional rulings, more time will be spent examining the historical, medical, religious, individual, and political realities that have shaped these conflicts
Comments: 
This course is open to Senior, Junior, and Sophomore Legal Studies majors only. Pre Req: LEGAL 250 or by Instructor Permission. Please contact Instructor for consideration.
