Sociology of Forgiveness

Fall 2019

Taught By: Aleksandra Wagner

Section: A

CRN: 7109

Credits: 3

Forgiveness is a subject receiving considerable attention worldwide in our time. It embodies problematic relations of history, memory, and justice and difficult distinctions, such as those between the criminal and the crime and between forgiving and forgetting. Through an ongoing multidisciplinary discussion of what forgiveness consists of, who can forgive, and under what circumstances forgiveness can occur, we treat forgiveness as a critical framework within which to view many complex problems in the contemporary world. The primary text is Considering Forgiveness, an anthology in which social theorists, artists, and critics discuss the position of forgiveness in contemporary discourse.
