MLL 090-11 - Banned Books and Other Words (Almost) Too Dangerous to Mention- 4 credits (HU) 

1:35pm - 2:50pm (MW)
Mary A. Nicholas

In 2021, attempts to ban books in the United States surged to their highest level in 20 years. Elsewhere around the world, censorship kept books, films, paintings, performances, even individual phrases and words out of common circulation. Moves to control what the public knows have a long history in most cultures, though the reasons individual works are banned vary from place to place, including censorship to extend political control, maintain public “decorum,” protect community values, or enforce traditional divisions in society. We’ll explore twentieth- and twenty-first-century works of literature, film, art, and music that have been banned around the globe to understand what motivates the censors and the ingenious dissenters who find and share such “dangerous” material. Assignments will include written responses, active discussions in class and online, and group projects.
