Course Description

This course explores the notion of belonging in Italian literature and culture from a variety of perspectives including national and regional identity, gender, sexuality, economic background, immigration, age and ability. Departing from the post-fascist period, we will study the development of national culture and countercultures during the second half of the 20th century and into our current decade. While our focus will be on literature and film, we will visit other artistic genres and cultural artifacts along the way.
