Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Love is an ineffable feeling, a type of hormonal imbalance, a form of interaction between hetero- or homosexual partners. It is also a site under continuous cultural construction - to be coded, discursivised, institutionalised, disciplined and judged. How the subject experiences love is influenced by multiple layers of memorised narrative; how the subject practises love is regulated by moral and social law. In our seminar, we shall look at lyric textualisations of love, sex and betrayal ranging from the Middle Ages to Post-Postmodernism in order to explore the political, ideological, philosophical, religious, gender-related and utopian dimensions of love as a cultural phenomenon.
Assessment will be on the basis of attendance, active participation, a short oral presentation and a seminar paper.
