Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 28, 2020 al Jan 9, 2021.

Learning outcomes

The course, held in English, aims at introducing the students to English literature (from the Victorian to the contemporary period), with specific reference to a selection of canonical texts, and at presenting methodological approaches for the analysis of literary texts and genres. The course aims at providing a good knowledge of British literature (articulated in historical context, texts, genres, literary trends and authors) and the skills for a critical analysis and argumentation on different kinds of texts in their historical and cultural context.
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
-Analyse the literary texts of the programme in their historical and cultural context;
- Apply an aware critical approach to literary texts and present an argumentation which shows knowledge of literary conventions
-Express the acquired literary and critical competence in English clearly and coherently.

Program

ENVIRONMENTAL HUMANITIES: CLIMATE CRISIS AND THE ANTHROPOCENE

If, as a species, i.e. as human beings, we will not take drastic and draconian actions in order to diminish the ecological footprint we leave on the planet, in 2050, the rise in general warmth of the earth by 3 Celsius degrees will foster, or have already fostered, irreversible natural reactions which will derange the planet dramatically.
The planet – Gaia – as our generation has had the luck to know it, will not exist anymore. Unhealable changes might by then have occurred, triggered off by Darwinian adaptation processes that the planet will undertake to adapt and alter its state according to the irreversible environmental situation. We will therefore examine chosen works of literature, of the past and the present, that have testified and testify to the present predicament and dangerousness of our situation.

Literary works that will be examined are:

- C. Dickens. 1987 (1854). Hard Times. Harmondsworth: Penguin.
- T. Hardy. 1985 (1887). The Woodlanders. Harmondsworth: Penguin.
- V. Woolf, 1982 (1928). Orlando. London: Granada.
- V. Woolf, 1933. Flush. A Biography. London: Hogarth Press
- A. Ghosh. 2019. Gun Island, London: John Murray.

Stage e tirocini

Nel piano didattico della laurea triennale in Lingue e letterature per l’editoria e i media digitali (L11 ED-DH) è previsto un tirocinio/stage obbligatorio (CFU 6).

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
