Inhoud
This course will explore the role of culture in resistance against political, economic, and social forms of power in France and the francophone world. The course will explore different theories of power as it relates to discourse, representation, bodily autonomy, and systems of governance. Students will read texts from theorists such as Michel Foucault, Homi K. Bhabha, Achille Mbembe, and Colette Guillaumin. Students will explore the different forms of power at play in various historical and cultural movements. Beginning with the aftermath of May 1968, the course will move through Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1970s, the Beur Movement of the 1980s, to the Yellow Vests and other contemporary issues surrounding migration, consent, and the environment. In turn, the course will look at the role that different cultural forms – protest movements, literature, cinema, popular music, and social media – play in these social struggles. Through various case studies, students will think critically about how culture can be created or reappropriated to speak truth to power and, conversely, how power shapes artistic expression and cultural practices.
