Programma
Mobilità di persone, cose e idee tra Europa e Americhe. Il corso esaminerà in prospettiva antropologica il fenomeno dell’incontro tra i colonizzatori europei e le genti amerindiane, fatto di flussi di individui appartenenti a regioni geo-culturali diverse, che portarono con sé, scoprirono, acquisirono, scambiarono, mescolarono, adattarono, trasformarono e reinventarono un amplissimo ventaglio di “cose” e concetti. Ciò diede vita a processi culturali e sociali di peculiare dinamismo e creatività, che perdurano e si intensificano nel presente, con innovative forme di riscoperta, contaminazione, valorizzazione e riappropriazione del passato in contesti globalizzati e in continua evoluzione. Attraverso alcuni esempi storico-etnografici, riguardanti gli ambiti della produzione di manufatti, dell’alimentazione, della religione e delle forme espressive (musica, danza, arti figurative), si esamineranno in chiave antropologica le forme di patrimonializzazione del retaggio delle civiltà delle Americhe.
Programma inglese
The mobility of people, things and ideas between Europe and the Americas. The course will examine in an anthropological perspective the phenomenon of the encounter between European colonizers and Amerindian peopless, made up of flows of individuals belonging to different regions, populations and cultures, who brought with them, discovered, acquired, exchanged, mixed, adapted, transformed andreinvented a very wide range of "things" and concepts. This caused peculiarly dynamic and creative cultural and social processes, which persist and intensify in the present, with innovative forms of rediscovery, contamination, enhancement and re-appropriation of the past in globalized and constantly evolving contexts. Through some historical and ethnographic examples, concerning the production of artifacts, nutrition, religion and the expressive domain (music, dance, figurative arts), we shall use the anthropological lens to examine the forms through which the heritage of the American civilizations is being appropriated and managed.
Obiettivi
The course will provide students with the basic theoretical-methodological tools that anthropology has deveolped in order to examine the question of otherness, starting from the first colonial encounter of the modern age:the mixture of somatic, linguistic, cultural and social patterns;the exchange, acquisition and re-functionalization and reinvention of objects, concepts and institutions in several different territorial areas.
