New MALAS Seminar @ SDSU: FALL 2016 Trauma in the Pop Cultural Imagination #sdsumalas #culturalstudies

Trauma in the Pop Cultural Imagination
Tuesdays 4:00pm-6:40pm, AL 102 

 Schedule # 
  Professor R. Dumas

Visions of trauma saturate global popular culture, ranging from re-imaginings of real-world historical events to fantasies of apocalypse. This course explores one of pop culture’s most enduring themes through the study of literature, comics, and cinema produced from the 1980s through the present day. Students in this course will examine how cultural artifacts produced by different creators and at different moments in contemporary global history engage with both traumatic memory and the anticipation of traumatic return. They will also explore a variety of theoretical approaches to the study of trauma, as well as engaging with important global political developments and cultural phenomena of the contemporary period.
