Courses in Foreign Languages

2009/2010 Winter Term


Dear students,

This brochure should contain all the courses offered in foreign languages at the Faculty of Arts
in the winter term 2009/2010. However, as the schedules are changing all the time and are
never definite, always believe the Lecturers and the departmental coordinators if you receive
two different pieces of information. There are different types of courses included in this
brochure from different departments, institutes and tuition programmes:

For all the regular courses (in foreign languages as well as in Czech) offered by the Faculty of
Arts, you have to SIGN UP ELECTRONICALLY. This is a rule you have to follow in order to have
the course on your Transcript of Records at the end of your studies here.

1) In the Information and Advisory Centre (Celetn Street no. 13), where you will get your
ID card, you will also receive your password to the electronical system. This is only the
password to activate your account, valid for 10 days.
2) Within 10 days you should login at https://ldap.cuni.cz/en/index.php (You use the same
login as for computers and the password you received in the Information and Advisory
Centre; your birth code suffix is most likely 11X9, if that doesnt work, ask in the
International Relations Office (main building, room 128) and your faculty coordinators
will help you.) There you can change your password and then use the electronical
system normally.
3) You can sign up for courses at the address https://is.cuni.cz/eng/studium/index.php.
4) Signing up for the courses in winter term will be open from 29th September 10am to
30th October 6pm. During this period you can sign up for the courses and cancel them
but this will not be possible after the 30th October 6pm.
5) At the end of the term, you will use the same system for signing up for the exams. Your
Lecturer should put your grade into the system as well.

ECES courses are part of the American programme. There are places left for the Erasmus
students as well but the capacity is limited. The system will allow you to sign up only for the
courses included in this brochure. Starting from the 21st September you can sign up for these
courses. You first need to register at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz/registrace.php using your name,
surname and birthdate; then you can sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, after logging in. The last
day to sign up (or out) is the 11th October. If any problem with registration occurs, ask in the
International Relations Office (main building, room 128) and your faculty coordinators will fix it.

For the sports, you have to register in the electronical system as well as in the own system of
the Department of Physical Education this is specified in the chapter Sports.

At some departments you also need to register in the own system of that Department, as well as
in the faculty electronical system. Ask your department coordinator about it.

If you have any further questions about the courses, always contact the department
coordinators first - they are responsible for the study programmes. The International Relations
Office is mainly the administrative part of the Erasmus programme.

Most of the courses (those offered by the Faculty of Arts as well as the ECES courses) begin in
the week Tuesday 29th September Friday 2nd October (Monday 28th September is a holiday)
some of them may however start one week later.

Wishing all the best


,

Marcela Boukov, LLP Erasmus Coordinator at the Faculty of Arts

Circulating within the Modern Cinematic Image (F.A.M.U.-International)


Lecturer: Erik S. Roraback (D. Phil, Oxford) / erik.roraback@gmail.com
Course is open under ECES programme in cooperation with FAMU (Film and Tv School of Academy of
Performing Arts in Prague). 5 places are guaranteed for Erasmus students. Sign up at
http://eces.ff.cuni.cz.
6 ECTS

Tuesday 9:15 12:15, room 3 (2nd floor), FAMU, Laansk palace, Smetanovo nbe 2

This inter-disciplinary seminar is modeled on the epistemological notion of a U.S.-American-


informed postmodernity/globalization, which for worse or for ill informs our contemporaneity, and
which by extension for us as such produces our class that pedagogically engages a select
examination of global films from the following twentieth-century world-directors: Sergei Eisenstein,
Carl Theodor Dreyer, D.W. Griffith, Buster Keaton, Fritz Lang, Friedrich Murnau, Dziga Vertov, and
Orson Welles (i.e., pre-1947 Occidental and Soviet cinema) with special focus given to those
cinematic moments that teach and that train us in new non-dominatory viewing strategies, in new
creative ways of circulating (our term for moving), and so by extension in new nonsadistic ways of
engaging with the most essential element of the cinema: the aesthetic unit of the image. The rle
of silence and of the unconscious in film culture will also be given special coverage. Film criticism
and film philosophy from Walter Benjamin, Leo Bersani-Ulysse Dutoit, David A. Cook, Gilles Deleuze,
Siegfried Kracauer, Niklas Luhmann, Todd McGowan, Edgar Morin, Jacques Rancire, Erik S.
Roraback, Steven Shaviro and Franois Truffaut, will be our principal textual objects of focus. All
films are either in English or have English inter-titles or sub-titles. Clips and special features from
the DVDs will also be shown. The course is conducted in English and consists of three clock hour long
sessions (i.e., four academic hours) to allow sufficient time for both the screenings and for seminar
lecture/discussion. Strategically, we shall engage our target pictures in a non-orthodox counter
chronological way in order to undercut over facile teleological ways of thinking and of reasoning; it
will also provide us with a different perspective on the evolutionary development of arguably one of
the more important and influential cultural forms of the twentieth-century.

Eroticism, Power and Fate in the Cinema of Central Europe


Lecturer: Kevin Johnson
Course is open under ECES programme in cooperation with teachers from the Department of Cinema
Studies. 6 places are guaranteed for Erasmus students, priority is given to students accepted at the
Department of Cinema Studies. Sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz.
6 ECTS

Tuesday 13:30 15:30, room 326, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)


Wedenesday 13:30 14:30, room 326, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

This course will look at a series of films from Central Europe (including present day Czech Republic,
Austria, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia) from the silent era until the present day. The
primary areas of focus are the various New Waves of the 1960s and 1970s, although some
attention is paid to pre-WWII film culture and developments since 1989. The course should provide
an overview of the cinematic traditions in Central Europe in historical and political context, with
specific focus on the themes of eroticism, power, and fate in these films. Beginning with the
10
assumption that all three of these concepts are somehow interrelated, we will discuss how each
film approaches this thematic constellation and how cinematic treatment of these themes has
developed over time and throughout the region. In this analysis, we will always keep in mind the
political-economical conditions (both nationally and between nations) in which the films were made
and consider the significance of these films within Central Europe. Since no previous experience
in film studies is assumed, the first few sessions will also function as an introduction to reading and
interpreting films. To this end the course reader is also supplemented with recommended texts that
offer an overview of relevant aspects of film theory and analysis. Throughout the course we will
also touch on various elements of film theory and modes of film analysis.

Films will be screened during the Tuesday sessions of the course, while the Wednesday sessions will
be comprised of lecture, discussion, and analysis. Screening sessions are a mandatory part of the
course!
NOTE: Due to the length of the films, on a few occasions the screening sessions will run longer than
the designated two hours of class time. Longer screenings will always be announced prior to class.

Central European Film: Search for Identity


Lecturer: Ivana Dolealov
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, 4 places available, priority is given to students
accepted at the Department of Cinema Studies
6 ECTS

Tuesday 10:00 13:00, room 326, Mail Building (Palachovo nm. 2))

This unique course is designed to discuss and question the identity of specific nations in European
space, which has always been a fascinating crossroad of ideas and ideologies as well as the
birthplace of wars and totalitarian systems. The course will cover masterpieces of Russian,
Hungarian, German, Polish and Czech cinematography, focusing on several crucial periods of
history, in particular WWII. and its aftermath, showing moral dilemmas of individuals and nations
under Nazi regime as well as revealing the bitter truth of the Stalinist years.

Cinema of the Other Europe


Lecturer: Petra Dominkov
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, 5 places available, priority is given to students
accepted at the Department of Cinema Studies
6 ECTS

Thursday 11:00 14:00, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The aim of the course is to show the most important trends and movements in the history of post
war East European cinematography and also to put the films within their historical (political and
cultural) context. However, we will also focus on the "filmic" quality of the movies, talking for
instance about narration, feminist film theory, off-screen space etc.
The topics are not in a chronological order; each lecture is focused on a particular national
cinematography. During the course students will watch selected feature films in their entirety.

11
3,6 Art History
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Institute of art history has no regular lectures and seminars in the foreign languagues. We
accept students in frames of Erasmus/Socrates programmes (or some other ones) and, finally,
give them the credits on the basis of both consultations and essays. Our Lecturers are ready for
the individual consultations. The foreign students obtain advices according to their study plans.
Resulting essay is written in the language which is common to the student and the related
Lecturer. The essays are completed by students on the basis of literature in the main languages
which is available in both our and other art historical libraries in Prague). Our general study
program is flexible enough to cover the individual needs of the foreign students.

For our programmes in coming school years, we publish updated schedule each summer. The
foreign students who stay longer or know Czech can effectively attend lectures and seminars.
The scale of topics of our study program ranges from ancient art & architecture to the 2nd half
of the 20th century. It includes both the international & the local art history (Czech lands &
former Czechoslovakia).

Contact person: Josef Zruba, joszaruba@seznam.cz

Following courses also belong to the study field of Art History but those are part of a East and

Analytic Philosophy of Religion and Religious Pluralism


Course ID Code: ARL100174
Lecturer: Janusz Salamon
4 ECTS

Tuesday 10:50 12:25, room 208, Celetn Street 20

The philosophical consequences of religious diversity (both inter-religious and intra-religious) is


today the most hotly debated issue among the analytic philosophers of religion. The growing
prominence of this topic is no doubt due to the recent realization (after the bankruptcy of the
colonial enterprise) that cultural and religious pluralism is apparently an irreducible phenomenon.
As such it seems to call into question the viability of the old style Western philosophy of religion
that was based on the presumption that the defence of rationality of any religious beliefs
presupposes the truth of only one set of beliefs. The goal of the present set of lectures is to explore
not just the various philosophical arguments of the enthusiasts and foes of the pluralistic
interpretations of religion, but also to see how religious diversity taken seriously affects the
philosophical reflection of other central topics of philosophy of religion. 3 areas of philosophy of
religion seem to be especially challenged by religious diversity, namely philosophies of religious
language, religious experience, and the problems of the undeserved suffering and horrendous evil.
As all these issues are today in the centre of attention of the analytic philosophers of religion, the
present lectures may be seen as an opportunity to join the lively debate which is taking place
mainly in the English speaking countries. For this reason, while the classes will in most part have a
character of lectures, considerable amount of time will be given to discussion based both on the
content of the lectures and on students' own study of short selected texts provided by the lecturer.

Ancient Ethics - Socrates and Plato


Course ID Code: AFS100355
Lecturer: Jakub Jirsa, PhD.
6 ECTS

Thursday 15:50 17:25, room 218, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The aim of the course is to explain and discuss basic ethical problems on the examples from Platos
dialogues. We will proceed from the so-called Socratic dialogues to the Republic and other writings

16
that are usually considered to be later or more mature. One question will be besides ethical
issues how these different dialogues belong together and what the common link between them is.

Each dialogue (or its selected part) will be accompanied by an article introducing the problem.
These articles will be presented (by participants), presentations of the passages from the dialogues
are possible as well. The readings (both primary and listed secondary sources) are obligatory.

All texts will be accessible in the library (course reader) and posted on web on Moodle.

Philosophy of Mind I (The Concept of Mind in Early-Modern Philosophy)


Course ID code: AFS100448
Lecturer: James Hill Ph.D.
6 ECTS

Monday 17:30 19:05, room 225V, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

Course Aims:
This course aims to introduce and discuss the main concepts of mind that were advanced in early-
modern philosophy, starting with Descartes. We will be particularly interested in how philosophers
have addressed the questions of what the essence of mind consists in, and to what extent the
nature of mind can be known. In particular we will look at the concepts of mind in the following
philosophers: Ren Descartes, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Nicholas Malebranche, George Berkeley,
Gottfried Leibniz, Baruch Spinoza, and David Hume.

Course Requirements:
Each week there will be a short reading available in the library (and on Moodle) which will then be
the subject of our discussion in these seminars.
Our course will be graded according to two criteria: attendance and written work. Students who
have not had more than three absences will be eligible for the grade. The written work will be a
short essay, of at least 2,000 words (hardcopy please), on one subject from the course. This essay
should show knowledge of the philosopher(s) in question, as well as the students own argued
standpoint.
Those who meet the two course requirements will be graded with an examination (zkouka) for four
points in the old Czech system, or with 6 credits in the international Erasmus system.

Responsability and Evil


Course ID Code: AFS100530
Lecturers: Mgr. Tijana Milosavljevi-ajetinac, Marina Barabas, Ph.D.
6 ECTS

Tuesday 12:30 14:05, room 208, Celetn Street 20

The question of evil is not new but its problematization is. After holocaust (but also after Rwanda,
Cambodia, Bosnia), there is a need for rethinking and reconstructing this problem in its essentially
political dimension, independently of the traditional contexts of theodicy or any other similar
attempt of univerzalization.
One effect of the universalization might be recognizable in a part of contemporary political
discourse in which evil is not the product of human intentions but of psychological and historical

17
forces that lay beyond human control. One of the most discussed phenomena which results from this
universalization and which identifies causal rationalization with moral justification and projects
evil to something or someone Other-than-us, is denying holocaust and genocides.
The topics will be structured around three important problems: 1. The essence of evil and the
possibility to recognize and define it; 2. The identity of human agents who perpetrate the evil
deeds. Are they insane?; 3. The problem of responsibility.

Following courses are offered by the Faculty of Humanities, Department of General


Anthropology, situated at U Ke 8/661, Praha 5. For more details contact the teacher. To sign

Histoire et historicit, au fil du dialogue entre Heidegger et Patoka

ECTS 5

Wednesday 15:30 16:50, room 6022, Faculty of Humanities

Il sagira dabord, dans ce cours deux voix, de saisir le sens de la dconstruction heideggrienne
des philosophies de lhistoire. Dconstruction opre ds ses premiers travaux sur le concept de
temps, et sur laquelle slve le projet esquiss dans Sein und Zeit dune ontologie fondamentale
en rupture avec toute la tradition mtaphysique, puisque dgage depuis une analytique
existentiale du Dasein une phnomnologie de lhomme axe sur son rapport ltre.
Patoka hrite avant tout de ce que Heidegger dvoile chemin faisant comme lhistoricit du
Dasein, en-de de toute saisie abstraite et globale des prtendus schmas de lhistoire. Mais la
vise propre lauteur tchque, celle de la praxis humaine et de son thtre politique, de moins en
moins prsentes dans luvre de Heidegger, nous invitent rpter en une guise radicalement
neuve , non seulement la tentative dune philosophie de lhistoire, mais aussi et partant celle
dune philosophie de laction. Ici senracine linoue richesse des crits de Patoka sur lEurope et
ce quil est convenu dappeler la mondialisation , quil est un des premiers penser. Cest vers
ces crits politiques quil nous faudra nous acheminer, en mme temps que vers lhistoire de notre
temps.

Philosophie et phnomnologie du corps : la dcouverte du corps propre


Course ID Code: YMFPR048
Lecturer: A. Glonec
5 ECTS

Tuesday 14:00 15:20, room 6022, Faculty of Humanities

Il faut attendre la Modernit, la rvolution cartsienne et la dcouverte de la subjectivit, pour le


corps propre, cest--dire le corps vivant et vcu, souvre la pense. Pour lAntiquit, comme
pour les sicles qui lui succderont, le corps est en effet pens, non comme propre, mais comme
Microcosme, cest--dire comme limage rduite, lanalogon, dun Macrocosme nomm Nature. Si
le corps est dcrit dans ses mouvements, cest donc en quelque sorte la troisime personne, sous
lil du spectateur tranger scrutant la physis.
Ce cours tentera dabord de rvler en quoi Descartes rend impensable cette harmonie, en
dcouvrant le corps propre comme problme. Mais il ne le dcouvre que pour aussitt le recouvrir,
en lui apposant la caduque union de lme et du corps. Derrire cette union, qui deviendra un des
thmes les plus chers de la philosophie classique, tout particulirement franaise, se cache en
somme un refus du corps, dont une grande tradition de pense reste encore tributaire.
Il faudra attendre Maine de Biran pour que le problme du corps franchisse nouveau les bornes du
mcanisme et du finalisme. De ce penseur trop mconnu hrite toute la phnomnologie franaise,
et ses prcurseurs, tel Bergson. Nul doute que le thme du corps y trouve sa plus grande place, et

18
que Michel Henry, comme Merleau-Ponty, ouvrent tous deux des voies essentielles au dpassement
du dualisme.
Cest tout particulirement la tentative merleau-pontienne qui retiendra ici nos efforts, car elle a
lincomparable mrite de stre heurte aux sciences naturelles et humaines, et den avoir discut
dans le dtail les mthodes et les conclusions quant au problme qui nous occupe ce que nous
tenterons aussi de faire. Depuis cette pense, il nous deviendra enfin possible dlargir le dialogue
avec dautres phnomnologues, tels Husserl et Patoka.

Die Vorlesung fragt, was Philosophie zur Klrung des Sinns von Europa beitragen kann. Dabei werden
in einem ersten Teil nicht nur Gemeinsamkeiten und Spannungen im Verhltnis von (Selbst-)
Bestimmungen Europas und europischem Philosophieren aufzuzeigen sein, sondern vor allem
versucht werden, im Kontext europischer Orte den Ort der Philosophie zu bestimmen. Es wird sich
zeigen, dass ein besonderes Merkmal von europischer Philosophie und von Europa selbst in einem
bestimmten Umgang mit Alteritt besteht. Ein zweiter Teil wird entfalten, wie heute eine
Philosophische Europa-Forschung konkret mglich ist wie sie ansetzen kann, welche Ziele sie
verfolgt und welche Ergebnisse von ihr zu erwarten sind.

fundamentale uerungsform menschlicher Leiblichkeit. Indem auf Bildwerke von der
prhistorischen Hhlenmalerei bis zum Kubismus Bezug genommen wird, soll die Perspektive nicht
nur als Leibphnomen analysiert, sondern auch die grundlegende Leibdisposition des
Richtungsleibs herausgearbeitet werden.

Verhltnis zwischen der Natur und dem menschlichen Subjekt leiblich ist und wenn jede Kultur je
eine Ausdrucksgestalt dieses tief verborgenen Verhltnisses ist, kann der Zugang dazu nicht nur
ein einziger sein. Es wird darauf ankommen, die Reichhaltigkeit dieser Zugnge an westlichen und

ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, 5 places available
6 ECTS

Tuesday 16:00 19:00, room 326, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The course will introduce issues related to intercultural diversity in the Czech Republic. The course
will focus on the real life aspects in terms of the manifestations of Czech nationalism, as well as
very current problems connected to migration: e.g. forced labor of immigrants and human
trafficking. We will visit International Organization for Migration in Prague to learn about projects
fighting discrimination of minorities in the CR. Students will understand the situation of Roma in the
Czech Republic not only through theory, but will have a first-hand experience of a Roma settlement
in Dobra voda during their field trip. Students will also develop their intercultural competencies and
intercultural sensitivity through practical activities. Students will improve their comparative and
critical thinking skills. Students will learn the difference between the emic and etic perspective in
their research and literature analysis.

Language, Culture and Social Cognition


Lecturer: Eva Filippov
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, 5 places available
6 ECTS

24
Tuesday 11:30 14:30, room 1, Jindisk Street 27

The course introduces students to selected topics centered on the relationship among social
cognition (i.e., folk psychology, theory of mind), language and culture. In spite of its cross-
disciplinary scope, its chief focus is on questions of human development. It is designed both for
students in arts and the sciences and will be run as a combination of lectures and seminars. The
lectures will be closely tied to the readings but will often go beyond them. The seminars offer an
opportunity to discuss the readings in detail and to raise questions arising from both the readings
and lectures.

Reading Prague: Literature-Architecture-Cultural History


Lecturer: Hynek Zykmund
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz, 2 places available
6 ECTS

Monday 9:00 12:00, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The course will survey Pragues history, focusing on the lives and aspirations of its multinational
inhabitants as they metamorphosed in the course of the last twelve centuries. It proposes to read
the city as a text and to treat literature and architecture as both expressions and symptoms of its
evolution. Throughout the course, literature and architecture will be explored through a critical
reading of the motivations, techniques and achievements which are at play therein.

El curso constituye una primera aproximacin a la literatura hispanoamericana desde el
descubrimiento hasta la poca actual. Est introducido por un breve esbozo de las literaturas
prehispnicas. Se analiza la actividad literaria dentro de un cuadro ms extenso de las relaciones
culturales, sociales e histricas, y profundiza sobre los rasgos especficos de la literatura
hispanoamericana por comparacin con el desarrollo literario espaol y el europeo. Hace hincapi
en el perodo colonial y su expresin artstica tan especfica, despus se centra en el siglo
diecinueve (la formacin de las literaturas nacionales, los problemas de la configuracin de los
gneros literarios, la formacin de una nueva conciencia americana). Dibuja a grandes rasgos la
poliforme creacin literaria del siglo veinte. En general, se constituye como el punto de partida
para el estudio posterior de la literatura hispanoamericana.

El siglo inquieto. Literatura y crtica en la Espaa del XVI. Desde finales del siglo XV, y a causa de
los cambios sociales y polticos operados a partir del reinado de los Reyes Catlicos, puede seguirse
la pista a un tipo de literatura crtica con las normas sociales establecidas, una literatura que
podramos llamar de protesta o heterodoxa aunque esos trminos sean problemticos. El siglo XVI
es, en este sentido, muy crtico, como si respondiera a unas fuerzas sociales en movimiento. En el
XVII parece que esas fuerzas alcanzan estabilidad y la tendencia crtica remite. Teniendo en cuenta
que en gran parte el problema depende de la Reforma, e, institucionalmente, de la Inquisicin, se
prestar un especial inters al cristianismo y la historia de la Iglesia.

Das 1859 verffentlichte Hauptwerk Charles Darwins "On the origin of species by means of
natural selection?, "das vielleicht folgenreichste naturwissenschaftliche Werk des 19.
Jahrhunderts" (W. Preisendanz), wird nicht nur bereits ein Jahr spter ins Deutsche
bersetzt, sondern findet - als Folge einer insgesamt vehementen Diskussion - bald auch
einen Widerhall in der deutschen Literatur. Dies gilt bereits fr den Realismus; fr den
Naturalismus gehrt Darwins Abstammungslehre dann schon zum Grundbestand seiner
Programmatik. Das Seminar folgt der Auseinandersetzung mit Darwin von der zweiten
Hlfte des 19. Jahrhunderts (u.a. in Gottfried Kellers "Sinngedicht") bis ins zwanzigste
Jahrhundert (etwa Robert Mllers "Tropen", Thomas Manns "Felix Krull" oder Max Frischs
"Der Mensch erscheint im Holozn").

9,2 Literature
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the Faculty of Arts, studying literature is always connected with studying the foreign
language. It means you have to follow the courses at the English and American Studies, Spanish
Studies, French Studies etc. The Czech literature is mostly taught in Czech, you can also read
the chapter Czech Studies.

NOTE: THIS COURSE MIGHT NOT BE OPEN!
6 ECTS

Thursday 14:00 17:00, room 1, Jindisk Street 27

The course is focused on Czech Surrealism from its beginnings in the 1930s when it was in touch
with Andr Breton, to its later phases in the second half of the 20th century. In the context of
European avant-garde, Czech Surrealism was an important movement during its entire existence. Its
main areas were visual arts and poetry. The names of Nezval, Toyen and trsk or later Jan

Deep Recessions: American Literature from European Perspectives


Lecturer: Pavel ernovsk
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz , 5 places available
6 ECTS

Tuesday 16:30 18:00, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)


Thursday 16:30 18:00, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

Over the history of modern literature authors have repeatedly been attracted to vice, crime,
insanity, depression, addiction, nightmares and existential anxiety, as if expecting that it was here
we should look for the secrets of being. And yet, instead of shiny secrets and mysterious revelations
often only an even greater misery is encountered Covering a selection of canonical authors of both
American and Czech cultures whose texts all deal with the dark or repressed material, the principal
question of the seminar will be not only literary, i.e. how is the theme of the dark dealt with, but
also theoretical or philosophical why is it dealt with at all. Covering a wide variety of styles in our
discussions from stories of pure horror to social critique, from the theme of capitalist exploitation
by others to the dread of ones own imagination, writing both traditional and experimental
students will be provided with an insight into the stylistic differences between individual
approaches employed by the selected writers. This comparative approach, supported by necessary
historical background, will be combined with exploring the question of what it is that attracts
authors to the dark sides of human psyche. Studying the relevant theoretical texts will provide us
with a wider context necessary if this attraction, that goes well beyond mere sensationalist
fascination, is to acknowledge the importance of facing that what is usually carefully kept hidden
and avoided as a dangerously deep recession. Thus the course should serve both as an introduction
into a choice of key literary figures as well as an introduction to the meaning of the repulsive
material.

From Kafka to Kundera: The Self within the World in Czech and Central
European Fiction and Cultural History
Lecturer: Petr Blek
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz , 6 places available
6 ECTS

Wednesday 10:50 12:20, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The course will cover the development of Czech and Central European literature in the modern era.
As a central issue, it will focus on the notion of identity and its transformations through the 20th
century historical context:
1) The notion of the collective national identity in the 19th century and its shifts into local, ethical,
or religious modifications (National Revival writings, Jirasek, Neruda, Meyrink);
2) The appearance of "men without qualities" after the turn of the century as a specific product of
Central European modernism (Kafka, Hasek);
3) The era of building up the state: identification with a state-based society construct (Capek);
4) Void identity as an enforced totalitarian effect: Holocaust writings and texts responding to the
first phase of building up Communism (Pavel, Margolius-Kovaly);
5) Artificial identity as a social/cultural product (Havel, Hrabal, Kundera);
6) Postmodern identity as a palimpsest-like construct (Topol).

From Modernity to Avantgarde: A Survey of Modern Poetry


Lecturer: Ondej Skovajsa
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz , 7 places available
6 ECTS

Monday 16:30 18:00, room 3, Jindisk Street 27


Wednesday 16:30 18:00, room 3, Jindisk Street 27

Leaping from a broader discussion of Whitman's "Yes!" and Poe-Baudelairian "No!" in modern poetry,
the course will further interpret works of Arthur Rimbaud, Czech fin de sicle poetry, T. S. Eliot,
Ezra Pound, D. H. Lawrence, Guillaume, Apollinaire, Velemir Xlebnikov, Vladimir Mayakovsky,
Marina Tsvetaeva, Henry Miller, Bob Dylan and more. Through detailed analyses of the poetic form
and broader discussions of the literary and cultural contexts, the course will focus on the shifting
role and quality of the lyrical voice, transformation of philosophical / prophetic /apocalyptic
impulses into modern poetry (Cf. Whitman and Lorca's beards with butterflies, Apollinaire's flying
Jesus, Rimbauds and Xlebnikovs romantic search for the Universal Language that "talks from heart
to heart", Mayakovsky and Fedorovs secular eschatology of ressurecting the Dead after the speed
of light is reached, Rimbaud's and Dylan's "I am not there" etc.) Thus, to the disappointment of
Oskar Wilde, the the course is to see how modern and avantgarde poetics also adopt various non-
aestethetic functions: religious, moral, noetic, propagandistic, prophetic...

Lecturer: Bernie Higgins
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz , 6 places available

Tuesday 11:00 14:00, room 2, Jindisk Street 27

This course aims to explore some of the diverse currents and personalities on the contemporary
Czech literary scene, focusing solely on post-1989 literature. Whilst not aiming to provide a
complete overview of contemporary literature it offers the opportunity to read and discuss some of
the most interesting of those authors whose work is available in English. The course will focus on a
number of genres - short stories, novel extracts, poetry, performance poetry, song lyrics and the
graphic novel and will look at popular literary forms, e.g. science fiction and the work of best-
selling Czech authors as well as more experimental, post-modern literature. The showing of films of
some of the studied literature will also be a part of the course.
The course will also offer students the opportunity to meet and discuss with some of the authors
whose works are studied, and also the chance to experience live literary events.
The overall aim of the course will be to offer an insight into post-1989 Czech society through its
literature.

American and Czech Literature from European Perspective: Identity and Role
Play
Lecturer: Blanka Maderov
ECES course sign up at http://eces.ff.cuni.cz , 7 places available
6 ECTS

Tuesday 14:45 16:15, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)


Thursday 14:45 16:15 room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The term identity" is essential for any exploration of society, the self and its various roles in
literature and culture. However, it is difficult to pin down exactly what we mean by "identity." As a
way of tackling this tricky problem, we will question various conceptions of identity in connection
with the selected literary examples. We will examine the way in which identity is construed in the
20th and 21st century. Is identity only a performance or role play? Or is there an authentic, inner
core to which we can refer? How do we approach the Other? In the course, we will contrast the
European obsession with construction, structuring, preserving and the American focus on
transformation, movement and change. Among the specific topics that will be covered are:
formations of identity, power, confidence, racial and gender stereotypes, minority vs.
mainstream literature in Czech and American societies.

Memory and Trauma

Contemporary Central European Politics: Transformation of Czechoslovakia and


the Czech Republic in Comparative Perspective
Lecturer: Ji Koubek

Wednesday 09:10 12:25, room 129, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

The course is offered also as an ECES course, but Erasmus students need to sign in in the normal
faculty electronical system.
The transformation of Czechoslovakia and later of the Czech Republic from a communist satellite
state into a European Union member state is an exciting story, but it is also an intellectual
challenge. It encompassed a profound change of political, social, cultural and economic structures
while at the same time meant a radical change in peoples lives. The course will start with a short
survey of communist rule concentrating on the role of the party, propaganda and political life,
looking also at the daily life under communism. Next two radical political changes will be discussed:
The Velvet Revolution of 1989 and the Velvet Divorce of 1992-1993; these will be taken as models
of change with much larger implications for the whole Central and Eastern Europe. The focus will be
on the discussion of key political institutions and parties in comparative perspective.

National Memories of the Holocaust


Lecturer: Prof. Pavel Bara, PhD.

Wednesday 17.30-19.05, room 123, Main Building (Palachovo nmst 2)

In the aftermath of World War II, the destruction of European Jews was not perceived as
something exceptional in relation to other Nazi atrocities. Neither the event itself, nor its
victims were given a special status vis--vis other events and victims of the war. Rather, the
suffering of Jewish civilians was superseded by an apotheosis of heroism of antifascist
fighters. This situation radically changed in the last quarter of the 20th century, when the mass
murder of Jews by the Nazis became an emblematic event that symbolized not only Nazism or
WWII, but the radical evil itself. As the genocide of the Jews began to be called the
Holocaust, it gained a pre-eminence not only in the discourses of the nationalities that were
part of it (as victims, perpetrators or bystanders) but also in those of other groups and societies
of the western world. Was it due to a return of the repressed that, according to Freud,
characterizes a traumatic experience, or, rather, to conscious efforts of various groups to
appropriate the memory of the Nazi genocide for their own purposes? This and related
questions will be asked with regard to the specific national contexts of Israel, Germany,
Poland, France and the USA.
