“Transitional justice” encompasses the legal and extra-legal measures that a country may implement to tackle a large amount of injustices (war crimes, human rights violations) resulted from a conflict or perpetrated by an authoritarian regime. Typical examples are (international) tribunals and truth commissions.
This seminar will look at the mixed roots of transitional justice: from its origins in humanitarian law in Europe at the turn of the Century (the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Geneva and Hague Conventions), to its first implementations in post-WW2 Europe (e.g. the Nuremberg trials), to its more recent globalization and normalization since the 1990s (e.g. the creation of a permanent International Criminal Court). The classic model of retributive justice (criminal trials) will be contrasted with the relatively recent model of restorative justice (truth commissions) and other, more innovative solutions (e.g. ‘transformative justice’). Throughout the seminar relevant cases from Europe and beyond will be presented to highlight the progressive globalization of the concept and its hybridization through new ideas of justice emerging from extra-European experiences (e.g. through the South American and South African truth commissions, the Rwandan gacacas, etc.). Hence, considerable time will be spent also looking into empirical cases. The field is highly interdisciplinary and draws on literature on political science, international law & human rights, anthropology, and area studies.

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 16:00 - 18:00 SuUB 4330 (Studio I Medienraum )

About the course

The course offers the understanding of basic concepts of international politics and political thought through the use of pop culture. The course is divided into two parts. The first part will be devoted to the popular TV show Game of Thrones (2011-2017). It will analyze the concepts of International Relations and International Political Economy, such as power, ideas, alliances, cooperation, war, economy, and various models of social orders based on the main characters and important events that take place in the TV show. The second part will explore the key ideas of political thought such as revolution, statehood, capitalism, Marxism, social contract and nature of human development on the basis of a number of movies and TV Shows including Star Trek (1966-2017), House of Cards (2013-2017), The Experiment (2001), Snowpiercer (2013), Ex Machina (2014) and the Matrix (1999).

10-76-3-D1/WD1-13Key Topics in Literature: Tracing the Fabric of Slavery I (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 14:15 - 15:45 GW2 B1170

This seminar will be based on a VERY close reading of Toni Morrison's Novel prize winning novel BELOVED. Be prepared to learn to focus on issues of form and content of this 20th century landmark novel. Our main question will be to analyze how the novel represents slavery - in many ways, comparable to the Shoah, an "unrepresentable" practice.
At the beginning of the seminar, we will address the crucial features of New World slavery and the transatlantic enslavement trade, before we get to the specifics of the novel.
Required preparation: study of this excellent timeline of slavery, see
http://www.brycchancarey.com/slavery/chrono1.htm
which gives you at least an introductory idea of the temporal and spatial scope of transatlantic enslavement.
Reading:
Toni Morrison, BELOVED.
Kenneth Morgan, A Short History Of Transatlantic Slavery, 2016.

10-76-3-D1/WD1-14Key Topics in Literature: Serial Narrative I (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 16:15 - 17:45 IW3 0200

This course will address the issue of serial narrativity based on a "close viewing" of NBC series: THIS IS US. We will analyze the narrative modes of seriality on an aesthetic level, but also look specifically at the representations of contemporary American society which this mode in general, and this specific series in particular, amplifies; see e.g. https://www.sueddeutsche.de/medien/tv-serie-this-is-us-haelt-zuschauern-eine-schulter-zum-ankuscheln-hin-1.3518146
Be prepared to check in with Stud-IP for further announcements of secondary literature on serial narratives, but our basic material (required reading) will be:
Frank Kelleter, "Five Ways of Looking at Popular Seriality", in Kelleter ed., Media of Serial Narrative, Ohio State UP, 2017.

Einzeltermine:

Este seminario se dedica a la representación literaria y fílmica de los desaparecidos durante la última dictadura militar argentina (1976-1983). Elegí por una parte textos fílmicos canónicos del "cine de desaparecidos": JUNTA. GARAGE OLIMPO (1999) de Marco Brechis,
LA CAUTIVA (2007) de Gaston Biraben y EL SECRETO DE SUS OJOS (2009) de Juan José Campanella.
Trabajamos también con algunos cuentos nuevos y con dos novelas que recomiendo comprar en las ediciones indicadas abajo: “La casa de los conejos” (2008), de Laura Alcoba, y “En ausencia de guerra” (2014), de Eduardo Cozarinsky. El libro de Alcoba presenta el punto de vista infantil de la hija de montoneros. Eduardo Cozarinsky se apropia en su novela “En ausencia de guerra” (2014) de manera desencantada de la imagen santificada del guerrillero.
El análisis detenido de los textos fílmicos y literarios ahondará en las técnicas narrativas, el contexto histórico-político-literario y las intenciones de sentido.

Estos y otros aspectos se tratarán asimismo en la sección "Desaparecido(s)" en el próximo congreso de hispanistas alemanes que se celebra en Berlín (27 al 31 de marzo de 2019). Sería una buena experiencia para los estudiantes de este seminario asistir a las charlas de esta sección que se imparte por Luz C. Souto (Valéncia) y mi colega Albrecht Buschmann (Rostock), quien forma parte de nuestra red de hispanistas de estudios literarios del norte de Alemania.

Al comenzar el curso todos tienen que haber leído la novela “La casa de los conejos“ de Alcoba. El programa detallado se presentará en la primera sesión, hay que inscribirse en StudIP, bajar el programa que se encuentra bajo los ficheros del curso y llevarlo a la primera sesión, en la que se distribuirán asimismo las ponencias.
Para obtener los créditos, los estudiantes del BA tienen que presentar una ponencia en clase y elaborarla después por escrito (6 CP); la fecha de entrega del trabajo escrito es el 31.03.2019.

Adicionalmente, los estudiantes del Máster Romanistik International, del MEd y del Vertiefungsmodul del TnL tienen que elaborar una hipótesis de trabajo o cuestiones para el debate en clase en base a fragmentos textuales que eligen ellos mismos.
