LITR 074F. A History of the Five Senses


This interdisciplinary course examines concepts of the sensory experience in a historical perspective. We ask if sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste are defined by cultural context. What are the implications of this contingency? Two crucial moments need attention: the Print Revolution and the Digital Revolution. What kind of new embodied beings are we becoming?
