What distinguishes this Minor is the on-site teaching, where Bachelor students are invited to always take into account the first-hand observation of objects, locations, urbanistics and social contexts. In all its courses, students are trained in documenting and analysing visual materials and performative practices in the Roman and Florentine contexts.
The SRISS is held in English and opens for the first time a double track: one for undergraduate students (BA) and one for post-graduate students (MA, PhDs, Postdocs, ESL teachers). Participants will be provided with appropriate methodological tools which will help them to develop a specific competence on Shakespeare’s Rome within an intercultural and interdisciplinary perspective.
This PhD/Research Master course will concentrate on early modern sermons, a genre of tremendous impact on European culture not just in the period of the Reformation but throughout. We will lecture on the practice of sermons in the period 1200-1650 throughout and beyond Europe, concentrating on the Roman scene: where, when and how were sermons held?
