ITAL 285 - Mangia! Food and Culture in Italian Literature

3 hours
Food and the rituals that surround it have played an important role in Italian literature through the ages. In this course, we will look at modern literature to see how writers have presented these rituals in their short stories, novels, and poetry. We will discuss these rituals and customs as a reflection of modern Italian society. We will look at writers such as Luigi Pirandello, Natalia Ginzburg, and Italo Calvino. This course is taught in English. This course will not count towards the Italian major or minor.

Listed also as MFL 285
