The first part of this course will explore Soviet attempts to create New People, free of selfishness and exploitation, creative and fulfilled. The second part will examine how all these issues evolved after the horrors of the holocaust and the Stalinist purges, when technologies of the 20th century increasingly fell under question. Students will also explore the controversy over 'Bodies: the Exhibition' and read selections that inform current debates about the post-human and the transhuman.
