Literature and Justice Class Offered in Fall 2012, COLT 285, 22040, Tues. & Thurs., 2-3:20 P.M., THH 106
In justice: What’s the right thing to do? Michael Sandel says that when we reflect on moral questions, especially those tied to "justice and injustice, equality and inequality, individual rights and the common good, we need an interlocutor in the form of political philosophers…who thought through…ideas [like] justice and rights…morality and law. But are political philosophers our only guides to understanding moral issues like justice and injustice?
This course explores two different discourses about the nature of justice: (1) political philosophers on theories of justice like human rights, humanitarianism, the theory of multicultural recognition, and theories of redistribution; and (2) the voices of those who claim they are victims of injustice. We will examine autobiographies, memoirs, journalism, and fiction by and about those who have experienced injustice today in countries and regions like Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel-Palestine, East Africa, South Africa, Europe, and the Americas. We’ll contrast the objectivity and public reasoning philosophers use to the highly subjective accounts of victims, with a particular focus on the impact trauma has had on their personal narratives. (While most of the theores and texts we examine concern the contemporary world, we will consider fiction and memoir from the Holocaust, including use of the video archive in USC’s Shoah Foundation Institute.
