Syllabus
Prerequisites: None. An exams in Contemporary History is advised but not compulsory.
Target skills and knowledge: By the end of the classes the student will develop skills at using a number of historical sources and will acquire the basic knowledge to draw upon them in order to prepare his/her thesis in contemporary history.
Examination methods: The exam is divided into two parts: 1) elaboration of a written review, on a book assigned by the instructor, that must be submitted by email at least fifteen days before the date of the exam; 2) oral exam on the issues addressed during classes and/or in the "textbooks" section of the syllabus.
Assessment criteria: Ability to discuss the issues addressed during classes and/or in the "textbooks" section of the syllabus; clarity in expressing one's ideas and arguments.
Course unit contents: The course aims at offering students the theoretical and practical tools to successfully undertake the preparation of an M.A. thesis in contemporary history, with specific reference to the knowledge of a number of sources characterizing the discipline, their availability and location as well as their use and interpretation. The course will be divided into two parts. The first one will address the definition of the sphere of contemporary history, the legitimacy of this discipline, the bibliographic research, the main journals of the field and an overview of a series of specific sources that, in addition to more “conventional” kinds like diplomatic records, will also include some other typologies such as oral, photographic, and iconographic sources, along with the documentation available on the Internet. The second part will focus on historiography and sources concerning mass emigration from Italy in the contemporary age.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal teaching with discussions during classes.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Further readings may be recommended during the course.
Students who do not plan to attend the classes must contact the instructor in reasonable advance to make arrangements for an alternative exam program.
