    ITAL 150C1 – Mediterranean Cities: French and Italian Perspectives
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 1 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This course considers the ways in which Mediterranean cities in France, Italy and North Africa have been viewed, experienced and conceptualized from ancient times to the present day. After studying classical and scholarly approaches to studying the idea of the Mediterranean, interactive and ecologizing, in the longue durée and microhistories, we shall explore the culture and history of Mediterranean cities and their societies. Our exploration traces ethnic and religious diversity, cultural, economic, political exchange and the history and representation of built environments. We consider the ways in which the city has been imagined in French, Italian and English literature. As the course unfolds, students engage with cultural ideas that have long captured the imagination of writers worldwide. We study the city as a dreamscape "cité pleine de rêves," and move on to trace literary conceptions of travel, the Grand Tour and the seduction of the Mediterranean city and the northern tourist. Following our close study of Venice mentalities, our course traces the history of networks and connectivity within medieval and early modern Mediterranean milieus. Aside from the familiar city-states and ports of call, we study in depth the free port city of Livorno and Jewish Sephardi diaspora. Units follow on colonialism and post-colonialism in the North African Mediterranean city intertwined with cinematic narratives of the region. Final units of the course trace the aesthetic, architectural, photographic representations of Mediterranean urban modernism from Mussolini¿s imprimatur on the landscape of Rome to the extraordinary developments of twentieth century art, architecture and urban design in Marseilles. To engage with contemporary issues, in the final unit we study representations of the cultural impact of migration on the region reading from Algerian born Italian author Amara Lakhous. It is hoped that by the end of the course, students will have developed a foundational grasp of the Mediterranean city from the French and Italian perspectives and learned to distinguish among intertwining ideas of regional and national politics, economies, colonial and post-colonial imaginaries and myths and popular culture.

    ITAL 231 – Fashion and Culture in France and Italy
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This course considers style, fashion and dress in France and Italy from a cultural studies perspective. Key to the cultural studies approach is the idea that gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, nationality, class, and other subject positions organize identities, social relations and the objects and images that culture produces. After a general introduction to these conceptual terms, our course surveys French and Italian fashion history from the 1500s to the present day. Students grapple with key questions of cultural history, beginning with an analysis of the reasons why Paris has been regarded for so long as "the capital of fashion". In recent decades, since the age of globalization, the geography of fashion has become more competitive with Milan, New York and London all vying for fashion capital status. However, the myth of Paris remains with us. To describe this magical mythical Paris is to imagine the place where all the refinements of civilized life reach their fullest expression from avant-garde art to elegant fashion.

    ITAL 433 – Italian Business
  • Honors Contract
  • Italian Business is an advanced seminar in Italian language and general business culture for 400-level students. It will be structured in weekly modules in which students explore both cultural and practical aspects of the Italian economy within the European Union. For example, they will investigate how traditions and customs affect the country's economy and will learn commercial terminology and business practices. Moreover, the seminar will include Italian films dealing with the world of business. These films aim to familiarize students not only with business situations but also with pivotal moments in Italian economic history such as the economic boom, the Mattei case, and the Parmalat scandal. The seminar will provide an introduction to Italian economy from the 1950s to the present, focusing on key factors in the transition from an agricultural-based economy to a leading country in world trade and exports ('Made in Italy' brand, vehicles, clothing, furniture, food, wine, etc.). The seminar will also focus on the acquisition and reinforcement of the essential, practical content, vocabulary and style of every-day business situations and transactions. Each module will offer a specific business situation in which students in pairs or small groups introduce themselves in a business meeting, make travel arrangements, write their resume and cover letter, prepare for a job interview, create a business plan and launch a new product. Finally, while students will be familiarizing themselves with the language and the practices of Italian business, they will also review contextually-relevant, advanced grammatical structures in writing and speaking.
