Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing students with a basic knowledge of the literature of United States in its complexity and plurality. Focus will be on specific texts, movements and literary tendencies.

By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize specific and often conflictual forms of writing. These are in fact generated within the context of different ethnic realities and traditions, and even though they are labeled as American Literature because of geographic reasons, they have totally different goals and forms of expression. Furthermore students will be able to approach texts with adequate critical tools, and will be familiar with specific features of American English.

Program

This course analyses different aspects of the relationship between jail and literture in the United States. We will recognize and define concepts such as rauma, resilience, and restorative justice in nineteenth and twentieth American literature. Several videos and films are included in the program.

Stage e tirocini

Nel piano didattico della laurea triennale in Lingue per il turismo e il commercio internazionale (L12) è previsto un periodo di stage obbligatorio (CFU 6) in organizzazioni imprenditoriali.

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.
