ANTH BC 3829: Absent Bodies | L. Sharp

W 10:10am-12:00pm | 4 Points
Prerequisites: Open to undergrad majors; others with the instructor’s permission. Across a range of cultural and historic contexts, one encounters traces of bodies – and persons – rendered absent, invisible, or erased. Knowledge of the ghostly presence nevertheless prevails, revealing an inextricable relationship between presence and absence. This course addresses the theme of absent bodies in such contexts as war and other memorials, clinical practices, and industrialization, with interdisciplinary readings drawn from anthropology, war and labor histories, and dystopic science fiction.
