Description

In what ways is the Italian community dealing with financial crisis, migrations, ecological problems, social inequalities, and the ongoing pandemic emergency, which are all progressively connecting countries with one another? How is the Italian way of life adapting to the hyper-technological features that shape the current millennium? This course will address these questions through an interdisciplinary approach employing movies, short clips, journal articles, literary texts, and interviews. Sessions will be arranged around topics including traditions and globalization, young people and employment, youth identity, the elderly, the environment, and interpersonal relations. The final purposes of the course will be acquiring self-awareness, sharpening critical thought, and refining language skills.
