Course Description

In the course of this seminar our main goals will be to explore, from a philosophical and psychopolitical perspective, what collective trauma is within the Latin American memory and cultural studies tradition, and to analyze the part that testimony plays in the construction of the subject’s agency. We will study the connection between Holocaust memory studies, psychoanalysis theory of trauma, and memory and cultural studies in Latin America in order to analyze the role of listening in processes of reparative justice.
