Mafia at the Movies


A study of the mafia, and by extension, of Italy's 'dark heart,' in its historical, social, economic, cultural, and political dimensions, as represented in a wide range of Italian and American films and television productions, from documentary to comedy. Course will also consider possibilities and limits inherent to cinema in representing, and influencing cultural and social realities. Taught in English, Italian majors and minors should inquire with the professor about the possibility of concurrently enrolling in a tutorial for credit towards the language requirement for the major or minor.
