This course investigates some of the ways in which people in Italy have constructed distinctions among themselves based on perceived differences of culture, language, and appearance. It shows that the desire to reinforce identities by means of ethnic ideology has a long history in the Italian penisula, and that such identities have generally served specific political and social interests in the communities which generated them. From the ancient Etruscans to the modern Lombard League (now Lega Nord), the course shows Italy to have been a cockpit for the development of (mutable, negotiable) ideas of ethnicity in Europe.
