Full UC Title: CONTESTING THE PAST 
Transcript Title: CONTESTING THE PAST 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines the ways in which literature contributes to public debate about the meaning of the past. In particular, it examines the role played by literature and film in dealing with divisive and painful memories. Which cultural memories dominate images of the past, and which events are suppressed? How does literature interact with other media in bringing marginalized stories to light? And in re-imagining the boundaries of nations? The course addresses these questions through the comparative study of novels and movies dealing with civil war (Spain, Northern Ireland) and with the legacy of colonialism (France/Algeria, Netherlands-Indonesia).
