M-STO/02 - MODERN HISTORY

Language of instruction

Italian

Period

Sem. IA (31.10.16 sosp.lezioni), Sem. IB

Learning outcomes

To expand the knowledge of early modern history; to acquire awareness of the difference between societies and cultures chronologically or geographically distant from one another; to familiarize with research tools which history has developed in conjunction with social theory; to develop strategies for the interpretation of relevant and diverse sources; to appraise the tradition of study in this field and discuss its problems.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of the main features of medieval and early modern history.

Program

The course will focus on the theme of death in early modern Europe and in particular on the beliefs about the soul's fate after death. Phenomena that questioned the separation between the world of the living and the world of the dead will therefore be considered, as well as the attempts made by different cultures to "pacify" the two worlds. Historical anthropology will be proposed as the methodology of enquiry, focused on a specific time period between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, though open to the analysis of a longer period.
The first part of the lectures will be dedicated to illustrate the methodology of investigation and the particularities of historical-anthropological approach. Subsequently we will look at some of the main themes of the course (the living and the dead, rituals of death, return of the dead, belief in the afterlife, witchcraft, possession, ghosts, etc.) to finally adopt the structure of a seminar on reading assignments and sources (autobiographies, inquisitorial processes, reports, treatises etc.). The last aspect is the cornerstone of the course, which will have a deep seminar structure. All students, therefore, are encouraged to participate actively and must be available to work during the course on the texts made available. They should also be open to discuss freely their reading impressions with the lecturer and other students. The active participation of attending students will form the fundamental element of assessment and will imply a continuous engagement in individual reading and class discussions. Attendance is therefore only recommended if it can be active.
In other words: in the lectures we will discuss openly and freely (precisely because it is a seminar) of what you will by reading, individually or in groups, during the course, and all students should will feel comfortable in exposing their points of view, obviously within the limits of politeness and mutual respect.

Set texts:
Attending students will prepare an essay on one or some of the documents analysed during the course. The essay will be discussed during the exam along with the two required volumes.
In addition to the two above-mentioned volumes, students who do not attend will need to study two other texts - or groups of texts - to be chosen among the following:

Examination Methods

Attending students will be asked to write an essay whose subject will be agreed upon with the lecturer.

Viazzo, Introduzione all’antropologia storica, Laterza, Rome-Bari, 2000.
For those not attending: reading of R. Bizzocchi, Guida allo studio della storia moderna, Laterza, Rome-Bari, 2002 and of P.P. Viazzo, Introduzione all’antropologia storica, Laterza, Rome-Bari, 2000, and two texts or groups of texts among those listed above. The assessment of their knowledge will be the subject of an oral interview.

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!
