4.07.161 On Reconciliation - Remember or Forget?


  • Donnerstag: 10:00 - 12:00, wöchentlich


"the249: Nur für TeilnehmerInnen am Indien-Projekt"

This seminar will deal with the topic of reconciliation. In a first part, we will talk about different concepts of reconciliation and the dimensions of remembrance, forgetting, forgiving and guilt. In a second part, the 1994 genocide in Rwanda will be the center of discussion. The third part of the seminar will then be spent with the film "Disgrace"by Steve Jacobs (based on the novel by J.M. Coetzee). The three parts together shall give us the possibility to have theoretical and practical insights into the topic of reconciliation.

For those who are curious , here ist the trailer to the film:

The seminar will contain a certain amount of reading and, of course, discussion about what was read. But don´t be afraid of the English texts - class language will be German!

Presentations and papers on the topic are possible.
