Short course description:

ITALIAN RENAISSANCE CIVILISATION AND CULTURE                                  

1. DESCRIPTION

The aim of this course is to investigate major aspects of the Renaissance in Italy from about 1350 to 1600, with special attention to developments in the great centers of Renaissance civilization including Florence, Venice, and Rome. This is a large and exciting subject rich in historical documentation, some of which we will have the opportunity to look at and discuss.

Commencing with issues relating to the idea of the Renaissance and historical periodization, the course then moves on to consider aspects of the political, social and religious life of Renaissance Italy, before introducing major examples of the art, civic culture, and religious, social and political thought of Florence, Venice, and Rome. The course finishes by considering the related issues of when the Italian Renaissance ended and what was its significance in the wider history of European civilization. This is a thoroughly interdisciplinary course: we will not only be investigating the art, literature, intellectual culture, politics, and society of this period, but also the links between these areas. Because of the richness of the documentary evidence for this subject, special emphasis will be given to the study of primary sources in translation and visual evidence.

2. OBJECTIVES and OUTCOMES

By the end of this course students should be able to demonstrate

  • a broad understanding of Italian Renaissance civilization and culture
  • an awareness of the main historical components, movements, features, and personalities of the period
  • a capacity to explore the links between politics, religion, society, art, and literature in relation to this theme
  • the ability to comment analytically on short extracts from primary sources in translation and on visual sources from the Italian Renaissance
  • an awareness of the historiography which has shaped the study of this subject

Teaching job at Leiden University, spring term 2016 - sabbatical replacement

Dr. Jan Oster from the University of Leiden is looking for lecturers who could give the following courses during the spring term 2016 as a sabbatical replacement:

  • Law and Economics of European Integration (alternatively, the course could be provided as a purely law-course based on the internal market), teaching period 1 February to 11 May, two hours per week
  • Justice and Home Affairs, teaching period 1 February to 11 March 2016, four hours per week

The syllabi for both courses are attached (Justice and Home Affairs - Law and Economics of European Integration). The course ‘Law (and Economics) of European Integration’ is a compulsory minor-/pre-master course of the department’s EU Studies programme. It has 50 to 60 students. The course ‘Justice and Home Affairs’ is an elective course of the MA EU Studies programme and has around 18 students. The level of both classes should be a very basic level for non-law students. Course material is available. The content-related design of the course is up to the lecturer. With regard to the ‘Law and Economics’ course this means that a lecturer who does not feel comfortable with the economics part could focus on the law of the internal market only (although the economics part is very basic). Regarding the ‘Justice and Home Affairs’ class the lecturer may decide, for example, whether to focus more on EU criminal law rather than migration law, and vice versa.

The teaching language is English. 

Remuneration will be around 2.000 Euro net for each course. If accommodation is needed it is possible to rent Dr. Oster’s apartment.

Law researchers in their 3rd, 4th and 5th year may apply.

Please note that according to the EUI policy on teaching placements, candidates need to present written approval of their supervisor. 

Interested researchers should send a motivation letter (indicating what they could teach) and their CV to Dr. Jan Oster, email  [email protected] by 2 November 2015 and copy [email protected] in the message.
