FRIT 35.01 From Dagos to Sopranos

Are Italians white? Where does the word “dago” come from? What is “dago red”? Can Italians be “Afrocentrists”? Are Italians racist? What do you know about the mafia? These and other questions will be at the center of this course. We will also work on the portrayal of ItalianAmericanness in “The Sopranos,” “The Godfather,” and Jim Jarmush’s “Ghost Dog.” The last week of the course will be devoted to the music by Italian Americans such as Sinatra and Madonna.

Open to all students. Text, lectures and discussion in English. Students taking the course for major or minor credit in Italian will attend a weekly x-hour and do all written work in Italian.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
