Organic Agriculture
MON to THU 9:00 AM-12:40 PM
Section: 301
OPEN
Notes: lab fee and/or material costs apply
Course code: AGR 220 T
Campus: Tuscania
Department: Agricultural Studies and Technologies
Credits: 3
Premises: Largo della Rocca 7
Marist Code/Title:
Hours: 64
Room: Beatrice
Description: Organic agriculture of plant products is a method of production that aims to obtain quality food products while respecting the environment of the production process. This means coordinating the elements used in farming and ensuring the “renaturalization” of an environment compromised by intensive agriculture. Managing a farm that uses the organic agriculture philosophy entails using new operational techniques that permit productivity and quality, while respecting the constraints imposed by legislation, and at the same time optimizing business profitability. In the transition from traditional to organic farming it is important to choose techniques as well as a variety of products that generate the best results in that particular environment. True organic agriculture is not only a question of business management but it also requires knowledge of agronomy and an understanding of the system’s methodology and history as well as its cultural aspect, i.e., the social, intellectual, and ethical values of this system. The course includes experiential learning with seasonal activities at a local farm and facilities, horticultural cultivation in Spring and olive harvest and pressing in Fall. The course meets for 45 hours in Fall and 90 hours in Spring.
Multifunctionality of the Agricultural Sector
MON to THU 4:00 PM-6:30 PM
Section: 301
OPEN
Course code: AGR 230 T
Campus: Tuscania

Credits: 3
Premises: Largo della Rocca 7

Hours: 48
Room: Beatrice
Description: Agriculture is the main production activity of food for human use. It is closely related to the processing industry of agricultural products and in many countries, the agricultural sector and the agro-industry generate significant income and employment. However, today we can no longer consider the agricultural sector solely as a producer of food but also as a sector involving a multifunctional activity. In particular, the traditional concept of agriculture needs to be connected to primary sector activities; for instance, by linkage linking them through economic, environmental, social, cultural roles that are capable of increasing the collective welfare of a territory. Moreover, although a farmer needs to modify the landscape and to use various invasive methods in order to produce food, s/he also has the duty to preserve and enhance the landscape, to protect and preserve the territory, to manage the environment and natural resources in a sustainable manner in order to preserve the biodiversity. When agriculture addresses these goals, beyond food production, it contributes to social, educational, recreational functions and it maintains the social and economic vitality of rural areas, yielding benefits for a whole community. Students will directly examine the multifunctionality of different types of farms in the area around Tuscania.
The Legacy of Latin: the Roots of Western Languages
TUE 12:00 NOON-2:30 PM
Section: 201

Notes: in collaboration with CAMNES
Course code: ANC 102 F
Campus: Florence
Department: Ancient Studies

Premises: Via de' Pucci, 4
Marist Code/Title:
Hours: 45
Room: Marco Polo
Description: Latin is all around us: audio, video, alibi, agenda, AM/PM, i.e., versus, vice versa… et cetera. These are just some examples that show how 2,500-year-old words still serve their purpose today. This course will focus on the impact of Latin on modern society and on contemporary languages, with special attention to how it has influenced English. We will show how ancient Latin words have adapted to our times and have become part of our everyday vocabulary. After introducing a few generic concepts in Linguistics, we will analyze some aspects of Latin: its origins, its history, and how it has affected many modern European languages. In particular, we will examine the case of English: we will discuss its characteristics, as we learn why more than 50% of its words have Latin roots. We will also approach the inner workings of Latin, by analyzing its core grammatical features. Then we will study some crucial aspects of Roman society -- for example religion, family and politics -- through selected keywords such as pontifex, familia and consul. As we study their original meaning, we will uncover their history and find out how such words have outlived Rome and managed to survive up to the present. Through this course, students will have a chance to expand their vocabulary, understand the underlying meanings of words, and find unexpected connections between them.

Description: This course looks at the Etruscan achievements and legacy in the areas of culture and society, the visual arts, architecture, language, funerary practices, religious beliefs, trade, government, urban planning, and family life. By examining the “mysterious people” known as the Etruscans, students in this course will become familiar with a specific ancient culture and discover how archaeology and classical studies apply a range of tools to analyze it. While a good deal is known about the Etruscans and a substantial quantity of the material culture still survives, much is also lost, and many questions remain unanswered. They built richly furnished tombs, which are still extant, for their noble ancestors, yet their literature has virtually disappeared. After flourishing for over five centuries as the main culture in central Italy, from the Po Valley to the area around Naples, and even ruling Rome itself, they were absorbed into the Roman state in the third century BCE. Their mineral wealth, fertile fields, strategic harbors, and other geographical and economic advantages fueled vigorous exchanges across the lively world of the Mediterranean. This remarkable culture affected both the Greeks and the Romans, and its ideas, customs, artistic motifs, and fashions spread north to the rest of Europe. Students in this course benefit from Florence’s prime location at the center of Etruscan power through museum visits to examine firsthand the archaeological remains of the Etruscans.

Description: We will look at the role of non-human animals as divinities, especially in Egypt (Anubis, Horus, Bastet), as hybrids in Mesopotamia and Greece, but also as possible theomorphic remnants in Greece, the many animals in connection with the cult of Artemis, Athena's owl, Hera's peacock, etc.), as sacred “objects” (snakes, pigs, bees), as companions (birds, dogs, cats), as "love gifts" (rabbits, doves), as working animals, as food, in sacrifice (bulls, cows, sheep, pigs), in war (horses and elephants), in hunting (deer, lizards, and birds), in entertainment among the Romans (the Colosseum -- lions, tigers, ostriches), and in Greek and Latin writings about morals and intellect (Aesop, Plutarch, Lucretius). In order to do justice to this subject, an interdisciplinary approach will be used. We will analyze materials from a number of fields, such as History and Literature (Homer, Pliny the Elder, Aesop, Plato, Plutarch, Ovid, Seneca, Aelianus, and others), Archaeology (pottery, sculpture, figurines), Epigraphy (inscriptions mention animals in various contexts), Zoology (Athenaeus, Pliny the Elder), and Mythology (Homer, Pausanias, Ovid, pottery, jewelry, coins). We will conclude with a glance at the role of animals and their relationship to humans in contemporary western and eastern societies, including the birth of the modern day Animal Rights movement, and Veganism and Vegetarianism in the United States and Europe with emphasis on Italy.

Description: Co(ok)quinarius, which takes place also within the fascinating context of the Florentine Central Food Market, explores the main elements of ancient Mediterranean food culture as the forerunner to modern Italian cuisine. Following the guidelines of experimental archaeology students learn to understand, prepare, taste, and evaluate ancient Etruscan, Greek, Roman as well as Near Eastern dishes within their social dimensions and cultural perspective. Starting from the distinction between the consumption and the use of food, students explore Etruscan, Greek, and Roman culinary traditions. Topics include the meanings of food, its social dimensions, the history of specific commodities; everyday eating habits and etiquette; rituals and taboos. This knowledge permits the class to accurately understand, recreate, cook, and taste ancient recipes. During interactive lessons students will improve their practical skills, learn how to prepare different recipes, and develop their knowledge of both the theory and practice of food anthropology. The key of the analysis is the Food Sign, a specially-developed tool with two inseparable sides: anthropological meaning and gastronomy. This instrument helps to show that in Antiquity any given dish wasn’t a mere result of a recipe to prepare food in a particular way as part of a meal, but was inevitably linked to sacral and social meanings. Students will be able to recognize and appreciate ancient traditions and to link them to the modern cuisine (when a particular tradition has continued) and interests.

Description: This four-week intensive course in archaeology is held at a specific site representing a distinctive ancient Mediterranean culture. The course offers students a unique combination of supervised onsite fieldwork and specialized academic instruction by archaeologists and other specialists. Participants contribute to the ongoing excavation and preservation of the site, learning essential practical archaeological techniques. The particular civilization represented by the site is analyzed in terms of its material culture, artistic production, and society (including political organization, religion, economy, and everyday life). The course includes weekly visits to sites, monuments and museums of relevance. The course is offered in collaboration with the Center for Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies (CAMNES). Offered at various sites, including two sponsored by the Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute. One of the richest sites for Etruscan culture, Tuscania in northern Latium, is situated in the southern area of the region inhabited by the Etruscans between the 9th and the 1st centuries BCE. Many features of the site and the wide range of artifacts discovered belong to later Etruscan culture (the Hellenistic period). The course focuses on Etruscan culture in a period of cosmopolitan expansion and assimilation to Roman culture. Learning activities may include visits to Cerveteri, Tarquinia, and the Museo di Villa Giulia in Rome. The excavation is overseen by the Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute, and CAMNES.

Description: Once dismissed as the “Dark Ages” of invasion and destruction between the fall of ancient Rome and the rise of the medieval communes, the period has become the focus of intense scholarly activity and debate. Thanks to excavations in towns, villas, cemeteries, churches, and castles, a vastly more dynamic picture has emerged for Italy from Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages (circa 300-1000 CE). Exploiting new data and finds, together with secondary studies and literary sources, this course offers an overview of the archeological evidence and history of one of the most vital and complex periods in all of European history. The stress is on continuity and major changes that occurred in the peninsula after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. The medieval remains in Rome and northern Latium are outstanding. Course topics include: the archaeology of various typologies (domestic, settlements, churches, monasteries, burials, defensive structures); specific cultures (Ostrogoths, Lombards); inscriptions; conservation and reconstruction; distinctive object types; basic analytical methods of various materials (pottery, metal, glass, wood, stone). Activities include visits to museums in Rome and Tuscania (special laboratory), and to two excavation sites.

Description: The course focuses on ancient epic literature through the analysis and comparison of some of the oldest and greatest works of Western civilization. Through the reading of the most significant chapters of the Iliad and the Odyssey, students will get in contact with the supernatural world and the mighty heroes described by “Homer” in 8th century BCE. These stories, considered the “Bible” of classical civilization, show how Greeks used myth to express archetypal values, which became immortal for successive generations and civilizations. Myths are analyzed not only as amazing stories but also as expression of ancient cultural traditions, and as primary forms of communication and instruction. The influence of Greek myths on Roman legends will then be observed through the reading of some passages of the Aeneid, the national poem of Rome written by Virgil in the 1st century BCE.

Description: How are anthropology and fashion related? How can this social science help us in analyzing both Western fashion and global fashion trends today? How can artifacts become fashion? What is the relationship between fashion and art? How is beauty constructed in fashion and visual culture? And how are gender and the body represented? Such questions, of more than specialized interest, have been raised since fashion started to be studied in academia in the 1980s. This course considers the particular contribution of anthropology to the study of fashion as an academic discipline and hence to understanding fashion as a significant cultural expression. We will study how meanings are constructed in fashion and visual culture, using the cross-cultural and transnational framework provided by anthropological research. We will also consider how fashion interacts with material culture through the production and consumption of “fashion items,” making fashion an interesting field of inquiry in the context of the anthropology of things.

This course considers the relationships between the multiple meanings of food and the acts of preparing and eating food, and further explores food and personal and social identity. Students will examine why different people make different food choices in their daily lives, why individuals from certain social classes will avoid or appreciate particular foods, and, in general, how food serves as a factor in self-definition. Because a person's attitude toward food can reveal not just personal identity traits, but a whole food ideology, this course will also analyze the role of food in the construction of ethnic identity, in the display of religious beliefs and in the negotiation of gender roles. Students learn how cultures and values are transmitted and preserved through food. Through personal essays and interdisciplinary secondary literature students will be guided to analyze the complex and fascinating relationships between people and food, helping them to understand how cultures (including their own) ultimately determine all human food choices.

Room: Leonardo
Dual Listing: POL 230 F
Description: The course aims to analyze the dynamics of conflict in social and cultural relationships and to investigate the circumstances under which violence – in differing forms, scales, and meanings – may erupt and substantially affect the structuring of “human” experience. The underlying assumption is that while conflict can play a positive role in social life, by no means the same can be said of violence. Concomitantly, different theoretical approaches will be presented to the students, showing historical, cultural, and political contexts in which conflicts and violence may take forms that threaten moral, political, and cultural order as represented by states, ethnic groups, and communities. Among the fundamental questions looming over the course are the reasons why violence seems not to be eradicable from human life, and why the globalization process, far from paving the way for a more just and peaceful world, seems rather to have unleashed “obscure” forces hurling humanity into an ever-growing spiral of violence. The course is structured into four main parts. The first part provides a comprehensive phenomenological framing of violence and conflict within human experience in general, the tradition of Western thought, and also the relationship between cultures. The second part concentrates on how conflict and violence affect political constituencies and democratic orders in a constitutive manner. The third part goes into more depth by articulating conflict and violence in terms of a phenomenology of “exclusion(s).” The fourth and final part of the course addresses the crucial issue of the transformation of conflict and violence by analyzing two main socio-political and anthropological categories: peace and reconciliation.

Description: In this course, students will gain an understanding of Romani history and society. Present in Europe since the 14th century, Roma (or Gypsies as they are pejoratively known) are often stereotyped as thieves and beggars. Debunking these stereotypes, we will begin by examining Romani identity and their migration from India to Europe. As the course progresses, we will discuss life in Romani settlements, Romani livelihoods, struggles for equal rights and social inclusion, and the role of nation states and the E.U. in governing the lives of Roma. Special attention will be paid to Italy's Romani population.

Hours: 45

Dual Listing: ART 202 F
Description: The aim of the course is to give the students the instruments and methodology to understand and recognize interior design styles. During the lessons the students will become familiar with the work of the outstanding masters that often applied their talent to the small scale (object or interior design) as well as to the large one (architecture) from the mid 19th century to 1960. Because interior design is so strongly related to object design and architecture, the course analyses the history of these three fields as a whole, from the industrial revolution to the present time, by studying the influence of society, art, economy, political events and scientific and technological discoveries. The course provides students with the tools for understanding new and innovative elements that a new trend introduces and for keeping updated with the latest news in this ever-changing field.

Description: This course applies the methods and concepts of aesthetics (the investigation of what makes something a work of art) to the field of design (including product design, interior design, architecture, and graphic design). Students investigate issues relating to the creation, value, and experience of design, and they analyze and attempt to resolve problems relating to design as a form of art. One part of the course concentrates on meanings of formalism and expressionism; another part explores issues that are involved in the evaluation of design such as cultural, social, and political environments. Specific attention is given to Italian Design, from its Renaissance heritage to the decades that made it internationally famous (1960-80s). Comparisons are made with Modern and Contemporary International Design. Students are encouraged to make the most of the visual and cultural experience offered by the city and by the international environment of the institute.

Description: Sustainability is a characteristic of a process or condition that can be maintained at a certain level indefinitely. Our current lifestyle is not sustainable because we base our energy requirements on burning fossil fuels that are running out, causing global warming and pollution. The key aim of the sustainable architecture approach is to help resolve the present energy crisis by designing self-sufficient buildings. The two basic principles applied are: reduction of energy needs and the use of renewable forms of energy (solar, wind, geothermic, hydroelectric or biomass). Other topics touched upon in the course are: the use of local building materials, the study of local traditional passive strategies such as how to create a pleasant home despite climate conditions and encouraging a sustainable lifestyle such as cohabitation-housing.

Description: This course looks at the Etruscan achievements and legacy in the areas of culture and society, the visual arts, architecture, language, funerary practices, religious beliefs, trade, government, urban planning, and family life. By examining the “mysterious" people known as the Etruscans, students in this course will become familiar with a specific ancient culture and discover how archaeology and classical studies apply a range of tools to analyze it. While a good deal is known about the Etruscans and a substantial quantity of the material culture still survives, much is also lost, and many questions remain unanswered. They built richly furnished tombs, which are still extant, for their noble ancestors, yet their literature has virtually disappeared. After flourishing for over five centuries as the main culture in central Italy, from the Po Valley to the area around Naples, and even ruling Rome itself, they were absorbed into the Roman state in the third century BCE. Their mineral wealth, fertile fields, good harbors, and other geographical and economic advantages fueled vigorous exchanges across the lively world of the Mediterranean. This remarkable culture affected both the Greeks and the Romans, and its ideas, customs, artistic motifs and fashions spread north to the rest of Europe. Students in this course benefit from Florence’s prime location at the center of Etruscan power through museum visits to examine firsthand the archaeological remains of the Etruscans.

Description: In this interdisciplinary course different disciplines converge to enhance students’ skills as readers of visual as well as verbal texts. It aims to open up new ways of seeing and perceiving works of art by exploring the relationship between us (spectators and/or creators), images and words, involving questions, such as: What is art? Where do we see art? How do we look at art? What words do we use while talking about a work of art, explaining and/or describing it? Can we “read” images? Can we “see” stories? Students analyze a selection of fundamental theoretical texts and produce close examinations of visual and written works, including narrative prose, and poetry. Students have the opportunity to become active spectators who, through activities of observing, reading, sketching, and writing, experience different modes of looking at art while learning about art theory, art history, literature, museum culture, and sociology.

Description: In order to truly grasp the shift in economic power that is currently changing the global economy, it is fundamental to understand the Chinese history of economic reform and its political, environmental, social context, and its implications. This course aims to explore the mechanism and consequences of modern China’s economic development as well as of China’s role in the global economy. Most of the analysis focuses on the recent history of China, especially following 1978 when China began its dramatic transformation from a planned to a market economy. The course will be organized around a number of major themes which include references to the historical and institutional background, the “rise of China” in the current geopolitical imagination, and key issues in China’s foreign relations. The key questions we will try to understand in this course are: Is China’s growth rate sustainable; can it be repeated in other developing countries; and what are the costs of this rapid growth?

Description: This course explores the business and marketing of wine, with special focus on U.S. markets. The Wine trade and consumption in the U.S. have consistently increased in recent years. If until the early 1990’s wine consumption was concentrated in a few major states, today wine is consumed by a large part of the entire U.S. population. Italian wines, counting for 30% of U.S. wine imports, are a major part of this economic and cultural scenario. In addition, new wine markets have emerged worldwide. This growing interest has strengthened the role of traditional key players of the wine trade, such as importers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, while helping to create new professional categories, such as wine writers, wine club managers, and event promoters. In this course students learn skills that help equip them to take on such roles. Given the notable diversity and quality of Italian wines, students examine issues of sourcing, shipment chains and trading channels, and market impact. The course includes business simulations, and students produce a startup or marketing project.

Home to the most iconic labels, brands, and craftsmanship, Italy is known for both its historic legacy and its present-day excellence in many fields. The course addresses the industries and fields of food and cuisine, fashion, and other areas of design, including industrial and architectural. Italian-made goods and services are an integral part of the Italian economy, society, history, and culture. Since a flow of expertise across time and disciplines seems to distinguish “Made in Italy,” students will connect the latter to patterns of continuity and change in Italian society and examine how the "Made in Italy" phenomenon has impacted the country's social fabric, character, and even mode of living ever since the Industrial Revolution, but, especially, since the post-war era, and how presently globalization is transforming the concept and its social reality. An additional concentration is on the business aspect of the label, in particular, on marketing, branding, and consumer behavior seen from both an Italian and international perspective. In careful consideration of recent developments, the focus may vary from semester to semester. Guest lectures and site visits will form part of this course.

This course considers the relationships between the multiple meanings of food and the acts of preparing and eating food, and further explores food and personal and social identity. Students will examine why different people make different food choices in their daily lives, why individuals from certain social classes will avoid or appreciate particular foods, and in general how food serves as a factor in self-definition. Because a person's attitude toward food can reveal not just personal identity traits but a whole food ideology, this course will also analyze the role of food in the construction of ethnic identity, in the display of religious beliefs, and in the negotiation of gender roles. Students learn how cultures and values are transmitted and preserved through food. Through personal essays and the interdisciplinary secondary literature, students will be guided to analyze the complex and fascinating relationships between people and food, helping them to understand how cultures (including their own) ultimately determine all human food choices.

Description: Focusing on Italian and Anglo-American literature and some films, this course will explore the multiple representations of Italy in the twentieth and twenty-first Century. Far from being the homogeneous culture that is often perceived from abroad, Italian culture is a very complex text where many different, and sometimes conflicting voices and images encounter. This course aims to look beyond what may be seen as mainstream Italy to discover peoples often marginalized by dominant cultural norms and stereotypes. Starting with the critical examination of the idealized image of Italy propagated by many famous foreigners throughout the ages, the course will then focus on the representation of Italy offered by its own writers and filmmakers. The texts that we will look into encompass many different peripheral voices that are nonetheless very powerful and fundamental to a true understanding of the Italian culture: southern Italians, Jewish Italians, emigrants (and Italian Americans), political dissidents, women, and more recently, immigrants from the global East and South are the voices that have contributed to create a country of intrinsically great and complex ethnic, religious, linguistic and political diversity; voices that often remain unheard.

Description: In this interdisciplinary course different disciplines converge to enhance students’ skills as readers of visual as well as verbal texts. It aims to open up new ways of seeing and perceiving works of art by exploring the relationship between us (spectators and/or creators), images and words, involving questions, such as: What is art? Where do we see art? How do we look at art? What words do we use while talking about a work of art, explaining and/or describing it? Can we “read” images? Can we “see” stories? Students analyze a selection of fundamental theoretical texts and produce close examinations of visual and written works, including narrative prose and poetry. Students have the opportunity to become active spectators who, through activities of observing, reading, sketching, and writing, experience different modes of looking at art while learning about art theory, art history, literature, museum culture, and sociology.

Hours: 45
Room: Donatello
Description: This is an introductory course to mass communication, focusing on a wide range of old and new media. Thus, the major themes will be two: "traditional" media (newspapers, magazines, radio, telephone, motion pictures, TV) and "digital" media (personal computers, Internet, digital TV, social media). Through a "social history" of the development of mass communication much attention will be paid to the "convergence" of old and new, as well as the most relevant marketing topics (product marketing, advertising). The course will show how technological changes have influenced mass media in modern times by increasing their variety and power. Secondly, it will examine how these changes brought about new communication possibilities, either as completely new concepts or in conjunction with existing media. Finally, the main cultural changes resulting from this evolution will be analyzed and discussed with regards to individual and social changes, and the political and economic impact and the role of information in our society. Semiotics is fundamental to approaching mass communication as a wide-scale linguistic phenomenon in which transmitters, receivers, and messages can be identified, analyzed, and critically interpreted at all possible levels.

Topics include: style, format, development, geography, image, scene, sequence, plot vs. character, hearing voices. Students develop the subject. 2. Students learn how to build a coherent treatment — a summary of the events and major emotional arcs of the film's three acts. They develop the subject into a treatment. 3. Students complete their feature-length screenplay.

Hours: 45
Room: Machiavelli
Description: Today's communications are so complex and the problems they encounter happen so suddenly that we may not have time to consider all of the ethical implications. Journalists, editors, professionals in advertising and public relations are called upon to weigh potential benefits and harm by their actions in covering stories, in revealing facts that might otherwise be kept private, and in respecting conflicting loyalties. They also find themselves confronted by situations in which they must choose between actions that seem equally right or equally wrong. Everyone encounters ethical dilemmas through wartime and peacetime propaganda, the Western world’s information systems, the PR industry, digital convergence and new frontiers for mass communication. The media inevitably shape our image of society whether we are professionals, consumers, or global citizens. This course explores the ethical dimensions of this dynamic.

Description: This course analyses the role played by the media in the evolution of national and international wars. We will investigate the extent to which the media either influence decision-making about military interventions or serve as tools in the hands of government officials seeking to influence public opinion. A number of media-related phenomena will be studied including the CNN effect, agenda setting, real time policy, media diplomacy, media war, news management, and propaganda, through the examination of key international conflicts, especially since 1950. Several different topics will be explained to understand the intersection between war and media: the proliferation of satellite technologies and the Internet; the importance of international TV networks such as CNN and al Jazeera; the role of still and moving images; the importance of journalists and journalistic conventions; the relevance of press conferences, briefings, and official statements; the representation of war in movies and artists’ works; the media gap between "North" and "South"; the emergence of "non-Western" media; and also the spread of ethnic conflicts and terrorism, and the increasingly asymmetric nature of war.
