Narrative Analysis

Fall 2019

Taught By: Nicole Berger

Section: A

CRN: 3676

Credits: 3

In this course, we will close read narratives – visual and written – that tell the stories of self and others. More than simply documentary or memoir, these narratives originate of specific desires: to reveal, to complicate, to challenge, to bear witness, to un-silence the self or (or for) others. We will read and view historical narratives, narratives of witness, narratives of illness and disability, slippery narratives or narratives with slippery witness, and narratives alive to their own construction. Through critical and creative inquiry into the work of these artists, we will seek to challenge, enrich and expand our ideas of memory and narrative, as we deepen our own work telling the stories that haunt or obsess us, the stories that keep us “wide awake and in the world.”
