Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing students with an advanced knowledge of themes, genres, and tendencies in the literature and culture of the United States. Focus will be on specific texts and on a variety of critical approaches to interpret them. By the end of this course, students will be able to amalyze texts that show specific tendencies of American culture. They will be able to connect literary works to political, social, and religious events. They will develop critical awareness in seeing how literature is influenced by its context, and how the context defines literature, this allowing for domestic and international consequences. Furthermore students will be able to approach texts with adequate critical tools, and will be familiar with specific features of American English.

Program

The course addresses throgh fiction and non-fiction texts the role of prison and imprisonment in American culture. -****ALL THE MATERIALS MARKED AS "PART OF THE EXAM" in the Moodle page for this course (Moodle page: https://moodle.univr.it/moodle/course/view.php?id=3478) -Algren, N. short story "El Presidente de Mejico" explored his experience in a Texas jail.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!


Stage e tirocini

Le attività di stage sono finalizzate a far acquisire allo studente una conoscenza diretta in settori di particolare interesse per l’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro e per l’acquisizione di abilità professionali specifiche.
Le attività di stage sono svolte sotto la diretta responsabilità di un singolo docente presso studi professionali, enti della pubblica amministrazione, aziende accreditate dall’Ateneo veronese.
I crediti maturati in seguito ad attività di stage saranno attribuiti secondo quanto disposto nel dettaglio dal “Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari” vigente.
Tutte le informazioni in merito agli stage sono reperibili al link https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
