Learning outcomes

At the end of the seminars, students will acquire competences in interpreting specific topics related to philology, literature and history, or necessary to the creation and improvement of their background.

Course contents

By attending the whole series of seminars scheduled every year by the Greek (and the Christian) section of the Dipartimento di Filologia Classica e Italianistica the students will have the opportunity to: a) approach in a critical way the problems related to the study of Greek literature in the variety of its forms and stages; b) compare different methodological approaches (from Italian and foreign schools) in the study of Greek culture; c) take part in lectures (usually scheduled on Friday at 11 AM) and seminars (including all the Seminari Degani) where their active participation will be encouraged (scheduled usually on Thursday at 4 PM).

Seminari Degani (to be updated: scheduled lectures by Luca Bettarini, Giuseppe Lentini, Gauthier Liberman, Maria Chiara Martinelli, Heinz-Günther Nesselrath, Anika Nicolosi, Antonietta Porro, Laura Swift).

No extra literature is required, besides activities required by lectures and seminars.

Since the course is a seminar, participation in lessons is indispensable.

Teaching methods

The teaching will be of two different kinds: a) lectures (exposition and argumentation); b) seminars with the active participation of the students (and their previous work on the topic of the seminar) and the use of the tools (traditional and IT) of the philological research.

All materials handed out during the seminars will be available at http://www.unibo.it/docenti/camillo.neri

Assessment methods

At the end of the series of lectures and seminars, the students will be asked to draw a brief report (20 pp. ca.) on the meetings attended. Alternatively they can write a specific essay – a reading list will be provided by the teacher – on one or more topics covered in the seminars (30-40 pp. ca.).

Teaching tools
