Topics in 20th Century Italian Literature and Culture|

This course is designed ideally for students who have spent at least one semester of study in Italy. We will examine a variety of cultural documents that date from the beginning of the 20th century and range until its end. Some of the literary and socio-cultural phenomena we will study include: futurism, fascism, neorealism, modernism, post-modernism, and the literary "cannibalism" of the 1990's.

This course is intended for advanced students of Italian. While study abroad is not *required*, it will be very useful to the student to have that degree of fluency. ITAL221, the fifth semester is the ideal course for students who have completed Italian only up to the end of ITAL112 (fourth semester) and have not yet studied in Italy. However, if such students are interested in enrolling in ITAL240, they should seek the counsel and permission of the instructor. Students with preparation from another institution or who have spent time in Italy and believe they have the appropriate degree of fluency should take the placement test during Fall semester registration and seek the permission of the instructor. Unless preregistered students attend the first class meeting or communicate directly with the instructor prior to the first class, they will be dropped from the class list. NOTE: Students must still submit a completed Drop/Add form to the Registrar's Office.
