Apply for the Spring 2012 Honors in León ProgramOctober 6th, 2011
Applications for the Spring 2012 program in León, History, Reconcilation, Performance: Europe and the Americas in the Twentieth Century are due January 13!
"In this program we will examine the ethics of representing war in both history and theatre. Some of the questions we will address are the following: What are the ethical responsibilities of artists, citizens, and scholars who seek to represent war's suffering, death, courage, displacement, and heroism? To whom are they accountable, and why? What does 'being accountable' entail when it comes to constructing a narrative whose consequences--trauma, healing, conflict, reconciliation, not to mention a complex mixture thereof--cannot be predicted? How should one resolve these questions?"
