Syllabus
Examination methods: The final exam will be oral and will focus on the essays indicated in the section of the Syllabus dedicated to the reference texts. During the course the students will present reports on essays and articles assigned during the lessons
Course unit contents: This course aims to explore connections and entanglements in the early modern world, with a focus on the encounters between Europeans and non-European during the 16th and 17th Century. This period was characterized by different forms of trade and colonization that gave the rise to various form of circulation of people, objects and ideas. An entangled history on these forms of mobility will be crucial to understanding our contemporary forms of mobilizes.

In particular, we will investigate multiple identities and cross-cultural interactions, studying the material practices and the cultural norms and values that sustained these encounters, as well as the process of violence and negotiations. From the experience of "global Italies" to the Spanish and Portuguese empires, we will conclude our journey looking at the Dutch and English Empires. A discussion on "West" and "East" as well as between the concept of "Stranger" will allow discussion on the current and past ideas of globalization.
