Lit of Migration in Italy

Literature of Migration in Italy
How is Italy changing due to immigration and emigration? Why do immigrants to Italy choose to leave their home countries, and why, on the other hand, do some Italians choose to emigrate from Italy? In this course we will examine contemporary Italy through the lens of migration. Students will read and discuss critical essays and literary texts such as Jhumpa Lahiri’s In altre parole and Igiaba Scego’s Adua, watch movies such as Lamerica, and discuss the cultural, economic, and literary aspects of migration in Italy. (In Italian; ITAL 0252 or by approval) 3 hrs. sem.
