This course uses literature and films as a way to understand norms, how they emerge, evolve and spread. Students besides literary works would have as assigned readings scholarly texts on norms. Students would use their own readings/films to illustrate any topic discussed in the course. During the course each student would make a presentation on any chosen norm, will write a review of a film/book which illustrates norm dynamics (and publish it in a public domain) and will write a genealogy of a norm based on an empirical study (interviews). Besides that students in groups would be moderating sessions in the last few weeks of the course for which they would suggest readings.
