CULT 411 East / West Encounters Select Term:
This is a critical review of texts, images and institutional-scholarly discourses that reflect or embody the East/West problematic. This course investigates the specific cultural, social and political contexts within which the imaginary boundaries between the two cultural realms, "the Orient" and "the Occident", have been constituted. While familiarizing students with the recent critical literature on the question of alterity, the course aims to demonstrate how knowledge of the "other" is historically constructed and indissolubly linked to shifting relations of power.
