Learning Objectives

The course is aimed at the acquisition, through a cultural overview and a historical retrospective on Germany, of the fundamental knowledge of German culture of the last two centuries, above all - where possible - in a contrasting and intercultural way and then dedicating oneself to the most recent developments, also on the basis of the recent thirty years of German reunification which recurred 2020.

Program

Cultural and historical aspects of Germany will initially be examined on the basis of the text by W. Lepenies, to then move on to sociological aspects on the basis of the text by N. Elias. Some aspects of the situation in today's Germany will subsequently be critically analyzed through the essays contained in the volume La nuova Germania, from political and institutional issues to the European and international context, with extensive contributions ranging from the geopolitical context, the constitutional tradition, the political and cultural institutions, the economic and market, European integration. Some of these essays will be addressed on the basis of recorded interviews with the authors.

This course is equivalent to 8 CFU, that is to 200 hours of total activity: if the hours of attendance in class are not included within this amount, it will be integrated with autonomous activities of the same additional duration.

Part of the course will be taught in German. The students can request to sit the final exam in German with an alternative bibliography.

Teil des Kurses wird auf Deutsch gehalten werden. Die StudentInnen können auf Nachfrage die Prüfung in deutscher Sprache mit einer Alternativbibliographie halten.
