ITAL 3350 - Fine Young Cannibals and Other Stories in Contemporary Italy

This course analyzes stories and short novels by contemporary Italians, from 1990 to the present. The works exemplify new forms of narration, many of which integrate ideas and practices of pulp literature, and noir currents, in the specific aims of their authors. Works by writers self-dubbed the ‘cannibals’ (‘cannibali’) are foregrounded, in an investigation of current short fiction and the imaginary of Italian society today. Taught in Italian. Prerequisites: Completion of or current enrollment in ITAL 3010, and permission of UVa study abroad advisor in Italian.

Credits: 3
