Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 27, 2021 al Jan 8, 2022.

Learning outcomes

The course includes topics on textual criticism, codicology, palaeography, historical linguistics and cultural history (also by means of a Digital Humanities approach to texts and contents) and it aims at studying the main multidisciplinary aspects characterizing Germanic Philology. Expected Outcomes At the end of the course the student will prove: - to be able to employ at an advanced stage knowledge and methodologies (also digital methodologies), and cultural contents which are necessary for the analysis and interpretation of Germanic linguistic and literary traditions; - to have examined in depth the main multidisciplinary aspects of the discipline and to have strengthened the mastery of a correct and accurate specialized terminology; - To be able to apply autonomously the acquired knowledge and contents in the field of textual-criticism and digital philology, codicology, paleography, historical linguistics, to the analysis and modelling of texts with the purpose of creating scholarly editions, archives and databases. This will promote knowledge of methodologies and applications in the field of philology, textual criticism and linguistics (in compliance with the learning outcomes of the Master Degree in Comparative European and Non-European Languages and Literatures).

Program

In the Germanic heroic tradition the events related to some characters belonging to the era of the great migrations play a fundamental role in understanding the textual dynamics marking the development of vernacular literatures. One of the best-known heroes in medieval Germanic literatures is certainly Theodoric of Verona (Dietrich von Bern in the German tradition, Þiðrekr af Bern in the Old Norse one), who can be defined as the result of the legendary reworking of the historical figure of the Ostrogothic king Theodoric the Great (454-526).
Starting from the historical and cultural context of the events surrounding the figure of Theodoric, the course will consider some of the most significant literary testimonies from the Germanic area. For instance, a Þjóðríkr is mentioned on the Rök stone inscription (9th century), which is considered the first literary attestation in Swedish, or in texts from the Anglo-Saxon tradition, such as Widsith or Deor (8th cent.). His fictional exile by the Huns is also the thread of the events narrated in the Hildebrandslied (9th century), the oldest heroic poem of the medieval German tradition. Also in the Middle High German Nibelungenlied (13th century) Dietrich appears at the court of Attila, while the Nordic tradition hands down the entire life of the hero in the Þiðrekssaga af Bern (13th century).
Relevant parts of the above-mentioned texts will be examined starting from an analysis of the documents in which they are preserved and of the language in which they are written. The reading and commentary will aim at tracing the multifaceted reception of this legend within Germanic languages and cultures. The various forms of literary reception of the figure of Theodoric are well summarized in the bas-reliefs of the basilica of San Zeno in Verona (12th century), where the valiant king is portrayed in the duel against Odoacer, in the traditional hunting scene and in the first iconographic attestation of his infernal ride, which will find wide confirmation within the Germanic textual tradition.
Teaching:
As established by the university for the A.Y. 2021/2022, the course may take place either on the Zoom institutional platform, in the form of frontal streaming lessons (possibly supplemented by some recorded lessons), or face-to-face according to the indications that will be provided in due time. Any changes will be announced before the start of the course by means of a notice on the instructor's personal page and on the Moodle platform, to which everyone is required to register. Any suspension of lessons or changes will be communicated in the same way.
The course materials for attending students consist of the teacher's lectures, slides and other materials that will be made available on Moodle. The program for non-attending students must be agreed in advance. For this reason, non-attending students are asked to contact the teacher via email (via an institutional address @ students.univr.it) for a possible online meeting (or in presence, if allowed).

Examination Methods

There will be an oral exam on Zoom or in person (depending on the evolution of the pandemic) and in both cases it will follow the official schedule published by the University. For those attending there will be a pre-roll call to be agreed together.
The oral exam will assess both the level of acquired contents and the ability to critically address the topics covered during the course, and to create connections among them. Part of the evaluation will also concern the correct and consistent presentation of the acquired knowledge; another part will verify the competent and appropriate use of the philological micro-language. During the exam the assimilation of the primary sources can be tested by reading, translation, and comment of short excerpts selected from the texts studied during the course and provided by the instructor during the exam. The final result is expressed out of 30 and it is to be understood as an overall evaluation of the results achieved.
For non-attending students, the exam will be oral and will follow the indications above.

Type D and Type F activities

Nei piani didattici di ciascun Corso di studio è previsto l’obbligo di conseguire un certo numero di CFU di tipologia D e di tipologia F.

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.

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!
