Italian Modernities: Lecture Series and Course (ITALIAN 300)
Lecture series and seminar on modern Italian literature, cinema, and culture. While we emphasize the 20th and 21st centuries, we will include medieval and renaissance topics also. We invite 3-6 speakers per year to address us about their recent work or work in progress, so as to get a better knowledge of very recent trends in the field of Italian studies, both in the US and abroad. Seminar meetings, when speakers are not invited, are for the following: (a) preparation and follow-up discussion of speakers' work; (b) presentation of students work in progress; (c) presentation of books reviews on recent work in the field. May be repeated for credit.
