ITAL 045: Italian Civilization

Karina Attar

(Submission #108)

Course Description

This course will satisfy the Culture and Values (CV) and European Traditions (ET) area requirements of the PLAS. Students will engage with a variety of cultural productions and disciplinary fields, including theatre, journalism, opera, dance, film, fashion, legislation, and religion. They will study diverse written and visual texts to better understand the ways in which human values and ideals are shaped by and reflected in political and religious institutions, as well as the multiple artistic productions we call culture. Students will develop a more acute understanding of the ways in which various media inform and express both the normative and non-normative values of a society. The course will examine Italian contributions to European culture in various artistic fields as well as in the history of ideas. This is a variable content course. Each time the course is offered, it will focus on a specific topic, historical period, and/or artistic tradition. Italian 45 (Italian Civilization) can be taught as a Writing Intensive (W) course.
