and explode our perceptions of the world This intensive course in analytical writing at the collegiate level will offer a chance to think through these questions and to craft rhetorically effective essays that explore the art of dreams and the oneiric imagination encompassing visual art film literary creations and aesthetic theory While dreams were classically viewed as messages containing symbolic meaning to be interpreted in the 19th and 20th centuries the oneiric imagination began to take on a feverish life of its own In the seminar sessions we will explore how art uses the experience of dreaming to structure a new sometimes twisted representation of the world Our exploration will take us through major literary texts from ancient Indian myths to work by writers like Jorge Luis Borges Luigi Pirandello Edgar Allan Poe and the great Iranian modernist Sagegh Hedayat critical philosophy and theory by visionary thinkers like Sigmund Freud Carl Jung and André Breton and some of the most striking visual and filmic art of the 19th and 20th centuries such as the paintings of Salvador Dalí and films by Federico Fellini and Christopher Nolan In our writing sessions we will work closely to develop and refine the techniques of writing that will allow each student to transform readings of those texts into powerful essays using rhetorical instruction materials and small group workshops that replicate the intensive writing seminars taken by University of Chicago undergraduates View Sample Syllabus PDF not the final draft subject to change Course Code HUMA 20903
