COML 4339 - Bodies at the Border

(also ASIAN 4440 , FGSS 4339 )(GB) (CA-AS)
Spring. 4 credits.

Co-meets with ASIAN 6640 /COML 6339 /FGSS 6339 .

A. Banerjee, D. Castillo.

Although the wounded, often feminine, body is the most powerful way of imagining border space in both the Indian subcontinent and the Americas, it is seldom coupled with the embodied practices and performances through which borders define everyday life and shape geographical and historical consciousness in the two regions. Drawing upon texts, media, and theory generated from South Asia and Latin America, the course will develop new comparative approaches to the constitutive role that bodies play in creating, maintaining, and imagining borders in the global South.
