How is the artist to respond when the virtual becomes the real and when words cannot carry the weight of trauma? How can an author avoid the accusations of voyeuristic prurience or crass opportunism when he or she attempts to re-present events of public violence? Is it justifiable to make art out of atrocity? This multi-disciplinary course examines work from a wide range of genres, including fiction, poetry, film, photography and graphic art, and looks at the difficulties of inscribing trauma in texts and at the ethics and praxis of remembrance.
