Italian 150: Modern Fiction in Translation

Instructor: Thomas Harrison

Branching out as necessary into the other arts and topics of particular relevance to culture today, this course will question the relationship between (a) Self and Collective, and (b) Truth and Representation. These are the poles between which most of us seek to orient ourselves within our times. Course materials will be drawn from modern and contemporary Italian literature, as well as philosophical and culture-critical essays. Taught in English.
