FYS 1028 - The Other in World Literature, Art, and Cinema

Hours: 4
This course examines human relationships in the context of world literature, art, and cinema in which the other plays a crucial role in the way the subject constitutes an identity either socially (Jean-Paul Sartre), sexually (Simone de Beauvior), racially (Frantz Fanon), or ethically (Emmanual Levinas). These perspectives inform not only how the self relates to others in the real world but also how this relationship should be lived. The latter ultimately raises ethnical questions: How should one approach the other? How does one response when the other is abusive or violent? Or, what can you do for the other that would have a positive impact in his/her life? This course offers you an opportunity to engage with others in the community to enrich your learning and your life.
