Learning outcomes

The course will offer a comparison between the processes of formation, and the construction of identity in different societies, trying to identify and compare the myths and rituals on which they are based.
Course participants will be invited to question themselves about how instructional models are able to create a connection between individual issues and social dimension, managing oneself and others, care practices and lifestyle, social, ethnic, religious and cultural differences.
Each student, within a small group first, and in relation to other groups, after, will have to learn how to build a space of interaction in which to test concrete techniques and methods of training and care between people, groups and communities.


The course will include the following elements:

 lectures and seminars
 constitution and experience of working and studying in small groups (4-6 students)
 exercises for research methods: stories and screenplays construction
 presentation of work, research, and individual and collective experiences
 preparation of a mid-term performance and final group essay
 drafting of a 'diary path' outlining individual and group's work
 selection and organization of own work for a website
