FYSP 120 - The Holocaust in American Popular Culture

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This seminar explores how a genocide directed primarily against European Jews became a universalized metaphor for evil and why it remains such a powerful signifier. Sources include representations of the Holocaust in music, literature, and the visual arts as well as in museum narratives. Through this framework, students reflect on the roles of news media, the arts, religion, and politics in shaping links between the past and present. Field trip(s) required.
