EXI549: The Art of Living With Loss and Grief

We will explore the mysteries of death and dying, the ways we experience loss individually and the many cultural rituals that may influence our healing processes.

In this course we will explore the mysteries of death and dying, the ways we experience loss individually and the many cultural rituals that may influence our healing processes: some of which we actively choose; some of which we can discover and study; some of which are already a part of our individual human landscape. What is universal? What is culturally distinct? What language do we want to talk about loss and healing? Students in this Interdisciplinary Course will have the opportunity to explore these questions and more through the study of literature, film, art, theory, philosophy, cross-cultural conceptions.
