ITAL X.140 Problems in Italian History, 1848-1915
Course Outline: Aims and Objectives
This course aims to cover a series of methodological questions - the use of sources, historical method, debates in Italian history. It will look in detail at a series of historical themes: the Risorgimento and the Nation; Banditry; Emigration; Colonialism; the politics of the Liberal period; the run-up to the First World War. Sources and materials may include newspaper extracts, novels and diaries, paintings, laws, biographies and maps. Students are encouraged to use Italian language sources when possible. The course prepares students for the second year history acting as the first stage of a ‘pathway’.
20 1-hour lectures: 4 1-hour tutorials. Lectures are weekly.
Attendance is compulsory and non-attendance can result in students being excluded from the written exam. Tutorials will be arranged each term.
Assessment: One three-hour unseen examination; course work of different kinds will be set and will be obligatory
All students should read the guidelines on essay writing included in the Department Handbook and follow instructions for course work as appropriate. All citations must be properly referenced (with author, title and page number) and each essay must contain a proper bibliography. Essays and course work must be based on wide reading, not just one or two volumes/articles. Internet sites need to be used with care and only in addition to, and not instead of, printed sources.
