OSPBER 80: The Secret Life of Things

What is the role of objects in culture? Address this question from a variety of frameworks, including new materialism, symbolism, material culture, and historical materialism. Contrast these approaches in our hands-on study of Berlinalia¿literally, all things Berlin. Readings by Walter Benjamin on the telephone, Carl Jung on the totem, Bruno Latour and Jane Bennett on the relationship between nature and culture. Objects analyzed range from the emblematic (the hammer and sickle) to the mundane (rubble). No previous experience in the humanities required.
