Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of modern political thought, modern political philosophy and modern and contemporary history.
Target skills and knowledge: The course will give students a good knowledge of modern and contemporary philosophy and political thought, with particular attention paid to the subjects, which will be studied during the course. This includes: 20th Century political doctrines, with their historical and ideological backgrounds, some of the main ideas of Liberty, Equality, Modernity and Revolution in the contemporary age, the conflicting relationship between political thought of Europe and other countries, the metamorphosis of the concepts of Empire. Moreover, the course will give students theoretical categories useful for understanding various processes of reconfiguration of the political space, such as the processes of decolonization; the relationships between technological innovation, regulation and transformations of the forms of citizenship exercise; the mechanisms of change in the category of European citizenship and the emergence of the category of global citizenship.
Examination methods: The examination will take place orally and students will be asked about the contents of the entire course. For each module, the exam will be divided in two parts. During the course, attending students will prepare a paper individually or as part of a small group, on a subject agreed-upon with the professor and present it to the class. Paper presentations will make up 40% of the overall mark of the module. At the end of the course, students will finish the exam with an oral examination, which will make up 60% of the mark. For non-attending students the exam will be the same, but the paper (40% of mark) will be email to the professor before the oral examination (60% of mark).
Assessment criteria: Students should show they have a good knowledge of the main points of the political doctrines studied on the course, and that are able to use the sources provided and the skills they have acquired, to interpret the global context of the contemporary political thought in an analytical way.
