Flinders University - Semester 1 - 2022

Please note that Italian is taught by Flinders University staff as part of an arrangement between the two Universities. Classes will be taught at either the Adelaide CBD (Victoria Square) or Bedford Park campus. Classes are held at either The University of Adelaide North Terrace Campus or at Bedford Park. For detailed information on this course, please visit, select 'ITAL' in the drop down menu and find the course by title. The course will examine how and why theatre developed in Western civilization through the ages, with a special focus on Italy. It will follow a 'thread' from Greek comedy and tragedy to 20th Century Italian theatre examining, among other things, the role of the actor, author and director. The focus of this topic are 20th Century Italian playwrights Luigi Pirandello and Dario Fo (both Nobel prize-winning writers), and Franca Rame. Selected texts are available in Italian with English translations, and will be read, examined closely, and discussed as required. Lectures will be conducted in English.
