Topics in 20th-Century Italian Literature and Culture
ITAL 240
Spring 2008 not offered

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 sociocultural phenomena we will study include futurism, fascism, neorealism, modernism, postmodernism, and the literary cannibalism of the 1990s.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Interpretation
We explore issues of modernism and modernity in the Italian and European context. Assignments aid students in honing their analytic and interpretive skills.
