Fernando Pessoa's Five forms of Anxiety

Subject Code: 
ILAC
Course Number: 
181
Description: 
Ethics, politics, and philosophy in the poetry of Fernando Pessoa. A close analysis of five forms of anxiety that pervade Fernando Pessoa's poetry: 1) that you are a person; 2) that you are one person; 3) that you are yourself; 4) that your life can be wasted; and 5) that others may fail to understand you. How do these forms of anxiety shape Pessoa's style(s), his system of heteronyms, his interest in certain literary forms (such as esoteric and prophetic literature), and his perception of the Portuguese cultural and geohistorical context? Readings available in English and Portuguese. Taught in English.

The Biographical Space in Contemporary Culture

Subject Code: 
ILAC
Course Number: 
320
Description: 

Proposes a space of articulation between theoretical reflection and analytical practice that allows to address, from language, the symbolic plot of the constitution of subjects and identities in diverse auto/biographical registers--texts, images, representations, testimonies, narratives; the affirmation of their voices: the search for senses, memories and values. Through a trans-disciplinary perspective, prominence will be given to cultural objects, debates and issues of great relevance in the current Latin American scene.
