Learning Objectives

The social construction of the scapegoat, the relationship between authority and obedience, the individual and collective processes of survival, are the main points around which the entire training path will take place. Analyzing  the Shoah,the course wants to give students the ability to manage social, philosophical and anthropological analysis tools that can be used in social sciences.

The course focuses on: - Analyze the mechanisms through which social institutions and systems build symbolic identities and manage obedience

-The social function of the scapegoat

-The influence that the social environment has on the individual autonomy

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

1. Knowledge and understanding: This is a critical look at the apparent evidences and the obviousness of the social, trying to grasp its foundations.

1.1 Students acquire this basic knowledge by actively and dialogically participating in the lessons and analytically studying the proposed texts.

2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding by referring to what has been learned from the common experience, using also the chronicle of events and the productions of the imaginary, such as the various forms of art.

2.1 Classroom discussions, seminars, conferences, film projections.

3. Making judgements: critical reflection using multidisciplinary approaches.

3.1 This ability is manifested in classroom discussions with the teacher and colleagues at special examination seminars during the exam.

4. Communication skills: an important element of judgment is responsiveness to the teacher's solicitude, active intervention in classroom discussions, the ability to propose reflections and objections.

4.1 These abilities are progressively becoming accustomed to a participatory and critically attentive attitude in the lessons and discussions.

5. Learning Skills: Students must develop critical learning and deep understanding skills by reserving a secondary role in storing; They must, without unnecessary presumption, maintain the autonomy of judgment and the ability to propose divergent and alternative visions of the hypotheses proposed.

5.1 Such skills will be acquired on different occasions of didactic interaction.

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

Frontal lessons. Individual study, which is recommended to integrate with lecturer talks, by appointment, in case of difficulty reading the texts. For more simple questions, please contact us by e-mail.

Attendance

Complete study of adopted texts, presence at at least 3/4 of the lessons. The student must have the normal level of general culture that can be expected at this level of studies, especially with regard to knowledge of contemporary history and the ability to express themselves properly in Italian. If the student is aware that there are gaps in historical information, it is strongly recommended that they review the manual adopted in the high school year. The study of the texts in the program has to cure the understanding of the fundamental concepts and the ability to expose them correctly in their own words. The purely mnemonic study is not appreciated. It is strongly recommended that you consult the teacher for any serious difficulties in understanding the texts that were found in the individual study.

Course books

1)J. Chapoutot, La legge del sangue. Pensare e agire da nazisti, Einaudi, Torino 2016

2)P. Levi, I sommersi e i salvati, Einuadi, Torino 1986

3)C.M.Bellei, La comunità nuda. Il politico tra libertà e sopravvivenza, Aras, Fano 2012

Assessment

The exam is individual and takes place only orally. All students will be asked to start the show by starting a topic of their choice. Knowledge of all the texts will be verified. The purely mnemonic study is not appreciated and does not guarantee that the exam is over. The level of general culture and the ability to express themselves correctly and clearly will affect the vote. It will be highly appreciated the ability to make relevant personal considerations. The top marks will be awarded by students who, in addition to having no major gaps in the program, will demonstrate critical meaning, good argumentative ability, and effective exposure. At the request of the student, a subject (optional) may be discussed during the exam, which must be delivered at least ten days before the exam. The editing of the dissertation does not dispense with the completeness of the study and has a positive impact on the vote only if it is of good quality, otherwise it will not be taken into account.
