Experiences of Conflict


The course focuses on representations of experiences of conflict. It gives students a practical understanding of the human dimension of selected major conflicts and explores possibilities for personal and social resistance to injustice and violence. Special attention is paid to questions of identity formation and moral choice in contexts of war and nationalism. Selected novels that deal with personal and collective experiences of conflict are reviewed in light of corresponding political science themes.
