Special Topic: Žižek Through Hitchcock
Slavoj Žižek is known for elaborating psychoanalytic and Marxist theory through the use of film and popular culture. In this course we shall read Alfred Hitchcock’s films and Žižek’s idiosyncratic citation of them to develop a theory of Žižek’s own work. To achieve this, each lesson looks at a film by Hitchcock and explores a key aspect of Žižek’s ideas.
