CORE 002 SC - Desire and Decadence: Interdisciplinary Contexts in Fin-de-Siecle Europe


This course will explore the fin-de-siècle aesthetic in the Symbolist and Decadent Movements that gave birth to new ideas at the threshold of Modernism. How did artists and writers from 1880 to 1914 reflect and reimagine new societal roles in such themes as the dandy and the femme fatale, virgins and vampires, or the sphinx and Salome? How do contemporary artists and writers reframe Symbolist and Decadent themes as they illuminate the ever-intriguing relationship of history to the present? We will compare our current attitudes toward change to those of a century ago.

Course Credit: 1.0
