Italian 4224: Survey of Italian Literature. “Environmental Italy. Power, Beauty, and the Apocalypse” is a BA-level upper-division course in modern and contemporary Italian environmental humanities and literature, transmedia languages on eco-crises, images of the Grand Tour, and pandemic storytelling. It is mainly intended for Italian majors/minors with a strong foundation in grammar and lexical structures, but it can easily be transformed as a historical overview for English-speaking groups or GE materials. It was taught in 2019 and then edited to include a pandemic section on Fall 2020 in a hybrid format. Some topics involve discourses on toxicities, pollution, and green counternarratives, vulnerable and marginalized landscapes, slow tourism, urban eco-projects requalification, pandemic studies, eco-poetics, and experimental films.
