20710101 - TEORIE E TECNICHE DELLA NARRAZIONE - LM

L-FIL-LET/14 NARRATION THEORY AND TECHNIQUES (6 credits, Master's Degree)


The module intends to outline, using each time a series of textual evidence from Italian and foreign literature of the second half of the twentieth century and the new millennium, the main characteristics of literary narrative and the function it currently performs in the overall system of communication. To this end, the constant comparison with other media is inevitable, with respect to which the literary narrative establishes a multiplicity of intertwining: decisive for understanding
the progressive extension of narrative practices towards sectors and skills unrelated to literature, which, however, can constitute an archetypal model to refer to. The course therefore proposes to offer the student the ability to master the basic techniques of storytelling and then export them to the communication strategies chosen by him as a privileged area of interest. To this end, prior knowledge, even if not particularly thorough, of the current media system is required.
