ILAC 334A: Concepts of Modernity I: Philosophical Foundations (COMPLIT 334A, MTL 334A)

In the late eighteenth century, Immanuel Kant proclaimed his epoch to be "the genuine age of criticism." He went on to develop the critique of reason, which set the stage for many of the themes and problems that have preoccupied Western thinkers for the last two centuries. This fall quarter survey is intended as an introduction to these themes and problems. The general course layout draws equal parts on Koselleck's practice of "conceptual history" (Begriffsgeschichte) and on Jameson's of "cognitive mapping." After consideration of an important, if often under-appreciated precedent (the baroque), we turn our attention to the conceptual triad of subject, reason and critique, followed by that of revolution, utopia and sovereignty. Authors may include Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Weber, Freud, Lukács, and others. This course is the first of a two-course sequence. Priority to graduate students in MTL, ILAC, and English.

ILAC 350: Roberto BolaƱo's 2666

Roberto Bolaño's 2666 raises questions about the representability of sovereignty, neoliberalism, gender violence, and globalization. An unlikely global classic, it has become a de rigueur referent in contemporary literary studies. Graduate students taking this class will not only engage in a narratological examination of novel, but also survey the existing secondary bibliography, including forthcoming manuscripts with special permission from the authors. The goal of the seminar is to prepare graduate students to formulate their own contributions to the state of the discipline.
