Learning Objectives

Learning how to speak and write about the main topics, periods, scheduled texts from the critical perspectives of gender studies and critical theory.

Students are encouraged to use up-to-date and flexible methodologies during class discussions and through on-going tests and the final test will  correctly ascertain the skills acquired.

The autonomy of the students in the choices, critical learning and organization of the study is also encouraged, ensuring adequate guidance and support for this purpose.

We will focus mainly on the objectives shared by the students (teaching, research, translation ...)

Program

Part of the program is devoted to critical theory, with lectures focused on author and poet D. Schwartz (reading exercizes, translation, preparation of didactic units, and research work.


Specific lessons concern the preparation for school competitions, a research project, an abstract for a journal or participation in a conference

Bridging Courses

Angloamerican literature and culture

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding

The student will come to possess knowledge and ability to understand contents and problems characteristic of the discipline (issues concerning American literature and critical theory) and its specific subject of the course (gender studies aand soundscape studies), also identifying possible continuities with previous knowledge and learning how to find intersections and interfaces with other disciplines (history, geography, cinema, political science)

Applying knowledge and understanding

The student will be able to apply his / her knowledge and understanding in order to demonstrate a professional approach to work  (esp. translation and teaching); both the aptitude to support arguments and to solve problems go in this direction, also with reference to new and interdisciplinary situations; 

Making judgements

The student will have acquired information and / or data in the field of studies in question, useful for reflection, hypothesis formulation and determination of independent judgments; he/she will also be able to apply the study and research methodology to other aspects of US literature that are not specifically treated.

Communication skills

The student will be able to clearly communicate knowledge, ideas, problems and solutions to specialist and non-specialist interlocutors. This also includes the acquisition of specific vocabulary.

Learning skills

The student should have already learned to study and learn independently. If not, this will be a good opportunity.

The student will get the basis for teaching American Literature in high school programs and academic research

The students will get basic (literary) translation skills
