ITAL 3390 From Reader to Author (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

In this course, designed as a bridge between ITAL2213, ITAL2214 and the 5000-level courses, we will read a small number of stories by Italian contemporary authors. Our purpose is twofold: to examine and analyze the theme, structure, and syntax and style of the text, and to subsequently have the students write, through guided activities, original short stories modeled on the stories they have studied. In brief, the course aims at strengthening Italian writing and communication skills.
