In Abnormal: Lectures at the College de France (1974-1975), Michel Foucault traces a "genealogy of the abnormal" based on the relationship between knowledge, power and society and social mechanisms of identification, distance, inclusion and exclusion. On this course we will explore one of the most common figures of abnormality, the human monster, together with violence, a violence shaped by both social and natural laws. This course takes students on a journey through the different representations in Latin American literary and film narrative of the human monster and other marginal figures such as criminals, fallen women, rebels, and the strange and unclassifiable. Texts will include works by Sarmiento, Borges and Bioy Casares, Rubén Darío, Horacio Quiroga, Leopoldo Lugones, Gabriel García Márquez, Roberto Bolaño and Silvina Ocampo. There will also be movies directed by Leonardo Favio, Luis Buñuel, Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Héctor Babenco and Arturo Ripstein showing the relationship between the monstrous ?other? and social and political power as one of discipline, control and standardization.
