Four credits
Four weeks in Italy

This course examines the nature of civic life in contemporary Italy, primarily through field study in Bologna. Focusing on four themes-food, shelter, space, and voice-we will seek to develop our understanding of how complex global and local conditions intersect to shape the constraints and possibilities of democratic civic community in past and present Bologna.
