    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures and seminars in italian and portuguese (online). Attendance is heartily recommended. Students who are unable to attend will have to study some supplementary material

     

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

     

    The course aims to consider the relationship between Portuguese culture and its territory and, more specifically, the role of the literary text as an implicit recognition of the mechanisms and forms that contribute to raising the territory to a factor of identity. Through a textual map made up of novels and poems, we will verify how the relationship between landscape and literature (also in its dense dialogue with the arts: painting and, in the twentieth century, photography), as well as producing an inexhaustible metaphorical arsenal, lends itself as a field of research for understanding the construction of Portuguese identity and its complex relationship with the events of its history, with its own imagination, with the cultural experience of a community that recognises itself as such. In these terms, an attempt will be made to read the Portuguese landscape in the history of literature and, more specifically, by referring to some of its most significant turning points.
