108. ITAL 045/045W: Italian Civilization

Contact:Karina Attar
Abstract: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.
