Term: Summer I
Courses: HONR 3309 – Honors Seminar Abroad and ITLN 1301 – Italian Language Immersion
The purpose of the course is to use Rome as a social laboratory to explore major urban issues. Rome will be examined in a context of its geographic region, its role as the capital city of Italy, and as a major urban center of the European Union. The course will address the social, political and cultural history of Rome and its role as a contemporary cultural trend setter and world class city. Through explorations within the city and other key sites in the area including Florence and Herculaneum students will learn about political and economic life of Italy. The course will use ethnographic research, scholarly articles, guest lectures, site visits to develop a deeper understanding of contemporary issues such as immigration, gentrification, changing gender roles, political corruption, and tourism that would not otherwise be possible in a traditional classroom setting.
