Aesthetics, Revolutionaries, and Terrorists
Who is a terrorist and who is a revolutionary? With the surge of Anarchism in the 20th Century, the “culture of fear” has become one of the axes of political activism. This course will explore the difference between the desire to correct injustice in society (Revolution) and the desire to destroy society (Terrorism) using literary texts and films. Readings will include novels and testimonies of the protagonists in various social struggles, as well as journalistic and academic papers about these social movements. Taught in Spanish.
