Learning outcomes

Using complementary teaching approaches (lectures on general history, monographic lectures on specific topics, seminars and labs aimed at analysing sources), the course aims to provide students with the foundations for an understanding of the reality and dynamics of early modern European societies (XV-XVIII centuries).
