Hall Bjørnstad
Course Description

Topic: A Question of Love

Is love at first sight a result of hormonal processes, the intervention of capricious gods, the expression of human will, or pure accident? In this class we will explore love as phenomenon and as representation from multiple perspectives, taking advantage of the tools of cultural analysis, artistic and literary interpretation, and scientific research to answer questions such as: What is love in 2020? What was it in the past? What would we be without it? Material studied will include film and literature, painting and music, alongside scientific texts, critical works and essays.
