PLPT 3610 - Italian Political Thinkers

Students of this course will study the political theories of Dante, Machiavelli, Beccaria, and Gramsci through a close-reading of each author’s major works. We will also examine how their ideas influenced contemporary politics, literature, and the visual arts both in Italy and in the United States. These goals will be accomplished through regular reading assignments, short essays, and presentations.
