Course objectives
In this course you are introduced to the conceptual and technical tools used in the study of different fields of Romance studies: textual criticism, linguistics, history of literature, dialectology, history of language, etc. Every class focuses on peculiar topics. You will acquire basic knowledge in the field of Romance studies, but also get in touch with first-hand research and research methods. Since the topics dealt with change every semester, you can follow this course repetitively. The topic of the course depends on the research programme of the teachers and possibly guest lecturers.

At the end of the course you will have a first hand idea of what doing research means, by attending to specialised lectures provided by highly qualified researchers in different fields of Romance studies; you will be able to deal with concrete problems and work with specialised bibliography and other scientific tools.
  • - textual criticism (Romance philology) - history of Romance literatures - history of Romance languages - Romance linguistics - dialectology
