Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course explores the different ways in which the digital has shaped narratives of memory in contemporary Latin America, transformed artistic practices, and complicated our understanding of time, space, identity, and the body.  We will look at works of literature, film, and performance that mobilize the digital in order to re-represent and re-activate the past, challenge authority, create new forms of political activism, and establish new relationships between bodies both human and nonhuman.  In discussing these works, we will also consider the ethical questions that they ask, whether explicitly of implicitly: Who owns our digital remains?  What are the advantages and the limitations of online social movements?  How far should we push the boundaries of the body? Should there be a right to a digital afterlife?

When Offered Fall.
