This course considers how several writers and visual artists have framed questions to do with the representation of violence, and how they have been framed by them. The course also aims to counteract the myth perpetuated by 'Troubles Trash Thrillers' that Northern Ireland is a knowable state, a hellish stasis left behind by world history. Themes studied on this course include: the ability to represent violence and trauma in both literature and the visual arts; identity politics; the impact of the Troubles (and the current ceasefire) on Northern Irish literature and visual culture.
