LARTS 375 — Narrating Childhood

3 credits
Anne G. Hoffman

This course seeks to understand the impact of childhood experience on development and identity, through literature and film. The intersection of psychoanalysis with Modernism at the turn of the 20th century will be one focus of our inquiry: Freud’s understanding of infantile sexuality follows directly on his exploration of dreams as the royal road to the unconscious; at the same time, James Joyce explores literary avenues to engage the unconscious and the child’s imagination. Readings include Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, Junot Diaz’s Drown, Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, along with two films by François Truffaut, The 400 Blows and The Wild Child. Psychoanalytic readings include selections from the work of Freud, Lacan, and recent research on gender and sexuality.
