Italian version: www.unive.it/cdl/lm20

The Master’s Degree programme in Language and Civilisation of Asia and Mediterranean Africa aims to model students that possess a solid understanding of a language in Asia or Mediterranean Africa (including micro languages). The linguistic understanding should be integrated with an advanced understanding of relative literature, history and cultural reality, and in their different dimensions (historical, philosophical, religious, social, institutional, archeological, artistic). Each piece of knowledge will be acquired both through teachings aimed at training cultural operators in the classicist sense who, in addition to the mastery of a modern Asian or Mediterranean Africa language, will also have a solid background in the field of classical traditions of civilizations studied (literature, philology and textual exegesis, figurative and performing arts, and religious/philosophical traditions); and through teachings aimed at training cultural operators in the modern field who, in addition to the mastery of a modern Asian or Mediterranean Africa language, will have a solid understanding of the socio-cultural contemporary realities of the studied countries, and their different aspects (literature, art, cinema, processes of cultural production, problems with gender and identity, elaborations of contemporary thought). In the Master’s Degree programme, teaching will be carried out with linguistic variety, from the specialised language to the vehicular one (english).
