Introduction to Mobility Studies.
This course will introduce Mobility Studies in relation to case studies focused on several mobile subjectsnamely, merchants, explorers, tourists, colonizers, pilgrims, and migrantswithin Italian, French, and Chinese contexts. As an umbrella social theory, Mobility Studies provides a new paradigm to explain significant social phenomena, which range from social inequality to global climate change, all of which are related to movements. Our course will contribute to cultural analysis of mobilities by exploring how to use this paradigm to frame major intercultural events (e.g., the Age of Discovery, the Grand Tour, and migrations) as they are articulated in narratives of diverse types (e.g., novels, journalism, diaries, and films). In particular, we will consider the motivations, knowledge and ~
, technologies, affects, meanings, and power relations of narratives of these movements.
