Taylor, MWF 9:55

Prerequisites: At least one intermediate level course in literature or consent of instructor.

What makes a family? How can the family support its members, and how do they construct a group identity? What factors make or a break a family? We will look at well-known, (mostly) recent Dutch novels and films, and discuss their portrayals of different kinds of wonderful and horrible families, and the many kinds of love, intrigue, mystery, and disaster which can occur.
