Course Description: This course considers fundamental texts and commentaries on the Italian North/South relationship from the birth of the Italian nation in 1861 to the present, and imagines expanded contexts for such questions in the contemporary era. It includes the study of both fiction and non-fiction films concerned with new migrations across the Mediterranean. Students assess the written word and the filmic image’s representation of the cultures of meridian thought. Special attention is placed on migration policies within the European Union as well as Europe’s relationship to the Mediterranean sphere and the cultural relationships within that greater sphere. Specific topics include asylum rules and requests, repatriation policies, and cooperation with NGOs and other European countries regarding at sea rescues. Readings include Antonio Gramsci's LA QUESTIONE MERIDIONALE, to aspects of Franco Cassano's IL PENSIERO MERIDIANO, to Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Appunti pee un poema sul terzo mondo," and excerpts from Tahar Ben Jelloun's DOVE LO STATO NON C’E’.
