Images of Contemporary Italy - ITLN3667

Year - 2020

Students will be introduced to a selection of twentieth-century Italian written and visual 'texts' (in particular films), and to aspects of the political, social and cultural developments which constitute their context. This unit of study will use a combination of lecturing, student presentations and group discussions. Students will be encouraged to develop a thorough critical understanding of the selected texts and a sound knowledge of and sensitivity towards the major social, political and cultural issues which have contributed to the identity of contemporary Italy.
