Description

(Offered as ARHA 146 and WAGS 113.)  We begin with a long-standing Spanish obsession with dreams, analyzing images and texts by Calderón, Quevedo and Goya. We next will consider a range of dream workers from a range of cultures, centuries, and disciplines--among them Apollinaire, Freud, Breton, Dalí, Carrington, and Kahlo--as well as others working around the globe in our own time.

Limited to 15 students. Spring semester. Professor Staller.

If Overenrolled: After the first class meeting, students still interested in taking the class will write a page describing the reasons, and the instructor will select students on the basis of interest that night.
