Bodily Fictions

Christina Dokou - Undergraduate - (A+)
Faculty of English Language and Literature, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

This course will explore, through the critical examination of various works of 20th century U.S. literature, the ways in which contemporary authors have expressed their view of, revision of, and relation to, the human body in all its variables. Given the anthropological view that culture (and therefore art) emerges as a reaction to natural stimuli, the body, being an all-pervasive presence in human affairs and the source of many existential parameters (including pleasure, pain, identity, procreation and mortality), features large in canonical literature worldwide, especially in the western world where feminism has reinscribed the importance of the body in all aspects of private and public discourse, and most markedly in the U.S., where, according to Jean Baudrillard in America, the cult of the body has been in full effect for several decades as a constituent element of American culture. The tribulations and the transformations bodies undergo within the endless realms of fiction em-body metaphorically and metonymically the myriad questions of theme, form, philosophy and function in the said art form, as a subject as well as a tool (from Plato’s idea of “engendered” textuality in the Symposium to Hélène Cixous’s theory of “writing the body” and Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg Manifesto”).

History of Economic Thought

Nicholas Theocarakis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Economics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

This course is an introduction to the history of economic thought. Students should be able to understand how economic theory has been developed. The approach taken is both historical and analytical. The evolution of economic thought is presented as a series of changes in the perception of the nature of socioeconomic process. These changes in the “vision” [in the Schumpeterian sense] of the dominant version of the theory entail each time the construction of new analytical concepts and categories and a new mode of their interaction. The course stresses the historical character of economic theories and the way in which actual socioeconomic phenomena affect the development of economic theory. At the same time the usefulness of different theoretical currents is being discussed, especially in relation to their ability to address the issues of the theory of value and distribution and of contemporary problems, such as unemployment and inequality. Special attention is given to the development of mainstream neoclassical economic theory in order to comprehend and view critically the economic theory that is currently being taught so that it will be seen not as an eternal truth, but as a episode in the history of economic thought.
