Learning objectives
The course offers some general lines of the history of political communication starting from the invention of the printing press to the current internet era and the conceptual tools necessary to understand the main theoretical features of political communication, considered in its historic and cultural environment.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student will be able to grasp the continuities and historic peculiarities of political communication starting from the modern era to the contemporary period. The student will be, moreover, able to put the predominant authors, methods of expression and political content into their historic contexts, using the proper verbal means and specific vocabulary to express philosophical-political concepts in clear and effective way. These skills will be acquired through a direct and continuous dialogue with the professor during the lectures and through discussion about the sources considered. This discussion will be a very important moment for the student to reflect critically and to develop methodological awareness. Participation in the seminars and the conferences organized within the activities promoted by the Department of Historical Studies will be of greatest importance.
Non-attending students will be able to use the didactic tools available on "Ariel" University of Milan webpage and to deepen their knowledge of the main topics through readings suggested by the professor and by dialoguing with him both via email and during office hours.
