ITALIAN 129: 19th and 20th Century Literature and Culture: Constructing and Re-Constructing Italy

This course will explore 19th and 20th century Italian history through a literary and cinematic lens: the Italian Risorgimento and unification in the mid-19th century opened a series of debates that resonated throughout the 20th century and its political and social turns. By looking at several works of literature, essays, films, and graphic novels, students will reflect on the historical, political, and social dynamics that shaped the Belpaese in the past two centuries. The construction of modern Italy will be analyzed as both an ideological and aesthetic process, to provide students with a grasp of how Italian-ness has been shaped from the 19th century until today. This course is both an introduction to modern Italian literature and culture and a continuation of the study of the Italian language. All class discussion, reading, and writing in Italian. Prerequisites: ITALLANG 22A or equivalent.
