ITAL 3010 - Advanced Italian Conversation and Composition

This course emphasizes the development of conversational skills and vocabulary expansion, while deepening students’ knowledge of past and current Italian literary, social, and cultural events through the discussion of texts and audio-visual material. Issues that we will examine include: the question of Italian national identity before and after the unification; the rise and fall of Fascism in Italy and the current rise of nationalism and populism in Europe; the origin and development of organized crime; and the history of immigration and emigration.

Prerequisite: ITAL 2002 or placement by the Department of Modern and Classical Languages
