OSPFLOR 14: Growing up American; Growing up Italian

To what extent is it possible to characterize and describe the experience of growing up either "American" or "Italian"? This course will explore our self-constitution as "Americans," while discovering how the interactional, institutional, and ideational differences of the Italian cultural context produce individuals with related, but different, ways of being a self. By engaging in both aesthetic and experiential learning, we hope to learn about: 1) the sociocultural constitution of selves; 2) the specificity of the American self; 3) an appreciation for the historical and cultural specificity of the Italian self. The course will be organized around several key social practices and institutions that shape selves and cultures. After first examining hypotheses about different models of the self, students will walk out into the city of Florence to investigate different domains of life through analyses of cultural products and visits to schools, churches, sporting events, museums, government offices, grocery stores, street markets, retail shops, restaurants and cafes. Each week will focus on a different topic, among which will be Family, Food, Religion, School, Sports, Dating, Literature and Culture, and Art and Architecture. The course will end with a wrap-up where students can present to the class their preliminary findings. Course requirements include 200-word weekly postings, participation in assigned activities, one 5-page paper, and a short final paper as part of a final group presentation.

OSPFLOR 27: Gardens of Florence

This course will examine the cultural geography of Florence's social spaces as sites for the development of the personal, social, and political experiences of an Italian cultural identity. Focusing on literary forms, landscape art, and garden history primarily in Florence and its environs, we will consider the roles of landscape and garden design and the ways that these arts represent the cultural and social ideology of their times. Florence is the home to a range of magnificent gardens, including the Giardino Bardini, Giardino di Boboli, Giardino delle Rosa, and the Giardino di Villa Gamberaia. To understand fully Italy's historic gardens it is important to appreciate both the political and social aspirations of the garden makers. How is the reality of landscape design related to the imaginary structures of aesthetic sensibility? How do both real landscapes and imaginary forms interact with social structures and economic models? These are the kinds of questions that we will pose as we explore the gardens, country estates, and city gardens of Florence to understand both their formal structures and the social aesthetics of their eras. It will also introduce the work of "social geography," especially as it relates to the study of landscape design, gardens, and the social use of public spaces in the Florence and Italian context.
