Credits: 3
Reqs: HU

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.

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.
