Italian Culture in British and American Literature

ITLN/LITT360 (2qh credits) | offered Academic Year

What happens when an English citizen or an American traveler visits our country? Amazement, surprise, interest, puzzlement, or wonder… Using works of both British and American literature, this course will attempt to provide an overview of outsider viewpoints on Italy and Italian culture. Through this method we can better understand how Italy and Italians are viewed by others, and arrive at a closer understanding of the students’ own experience.
