Seminar mit Prof. Dr. iur. Elisabetta Fiocchi Malaspina

State, Power, and Violence between Law, History and Literature

We would like to present and discuss four essential books to understand the complex relationship between State, Power, and Violence: Walter Benjamin’s Critique of Violence (Zur Kritik der Gewalt), Giorgio Agamben’s Homo Sacer, Michel Foucault’s Security, Territory, Population (La naissance de la biopolitique) and Jacques Derrida’s Force of Law (Force de Loi). With an interdisciplinary approach that involves Literary Theory, Cultural Studies, Law and Legal History, Brazilian and Latin American Studies , the seminar intends to integrate students (Master and Bachelor) from Comparative Literature, Romance Studies, Law Studies, Film Studies, Art History and History to establish a fruitful dialogue between these different disciplines.
