Condition Nervous (HUM415)

Amazing class today. We broke new ground with the sheer number and quality of comments. Monday we’ll continue our discussion of Nervous Conditions and add something to the mix, picking up the theme of development and linking it to the literary genre of the Bildungsroman (pdf). In the meantime you might skim the following blog entry from a prior version of this class:

Also, I mentioned we would be reading Jean-Paul Sartre’s preface to Frantz Fanon’s Wretched of the earth. Let’s shoot for next Friday, Mar. 5.  Here’s the link:

Finally, if you look at the course information page then you’ll see that each unit features a few key terms. You can bet some or all of these will appear on the mid-term.
