Curriculum

The curriculum of the new Faculty of Italian Language and Literature focuses on the language, the literature and the culture of Italy as well as the cultural interactions between Greece and Italy.

Language and Linguistics

The Italian language courses are offered to students during all of the semesters and are a prerequisite for their educational development. The linguistics courses of the Faculty are designed to familiarize students with the basic theoretical and methodological principles of linguistic science. They cover a wide range of areas of both theoretical and applied linguistics and they provide updated knowledge on the latest trends in theoretical linguistic analysis and language teaching. Particular reference should be made about our Faculty’s courses that combine linguistics and New Technologies offering advanced knowledge and laboratory hands on experience in our students in rapidly evolving interdisciplinary fields.

Literature

The courses of Italian Literature primarily aim at teaching the main genres, literature waves and writers from the Middle Ages until today. Moreover, their target is to highlight the possibility of multiple scientific approaches within the field of Literature as well as the deeper study of literary trends on the research and teaching of Literature and Comparative Literature.

Particular emphasis is given on literary interactions between Greece and Italy. Students learn the basic principles of narratology, they exercise in textual analysis and in the use of literature. Students are also taught how to generally deal with scientific discourse.

Civilization

Culture lessons introduce students to the study of:

a) History and Civilization of Italy (Italian History and Civilization I and II, Topics in Italian History and Civilization).

b) The common history of Greeks and Italians during the long Venetian dominion in Greece (Venetian dominion – Seminar on Paleography and the Edition of historical sources).

c) Italian Theatre (Introduction to Theatre, History of Italian Theatre).

d) Italian Art (Special topics in Italian culture).

e) Italian Music (Introduction to Italian Music I and II, Special Topics in Italian Music).

Through these courses students are introduced to the issues of the cultural “conditions” of Italy and its inhabitants that created Italian language and literature.

At the same time, valuable perspective is being offered to our students through the research field of history and civilization of Italy. This perspective is cultivated by our Faculty through our Postgraduate Programme “Hellenic-Roman –Hellenic-Italian studies: History and Civilization”.
