Course Title: Film and Nostalgia

Course Description: Why are so many films set in the past? Why do we like them so much, and what do we learn from them? What is heritage and how do we experience and discuss heritage? This course considers how we construct, remember and represent the past, and how films help to forge a sense of national identity and heritage.

Course Title: The Absurd part 2
Course Number: C2227782
Course Description: We, human beings, are programmed to look for meanings in life. However, some writers in the mid-twentieth-century began to question the idea that life had any meaning beyond the patterns we make for ourselves. On this ten week course we shall study two of these so-called absurdist texts: first, "The Outsider" by Albert Camus and, second, two plays by Harold Pinter. Who were these writers, and what were they trying to do? How relevant are they today? If you'd like to know more, come and join us.
