Primo Levi within Holocaust Literature
In the fall of 2012, Professor Harrowitz will be teaching RN459, “Primo Levi within Holocaust Literature”. Primo Levi’s writings employ a variety of interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the Holocaust: scientific, literary, theological and philosophical. The course will examine these approaches by reading Levi’s works within the double context of other theorists such as Arendt, Wiesel, and Muller-Hill, and within the practice of Holocaust testimony and witnessing in works by Delbo, Borowski and Fink.
