Learning outcomes

The course, which will be held in German, aims at analysing travel writing and ekphrastic texts issued on C. M. Wieland’s journal Teutscher Merkur.


Sulla base di una scelta antologica di descrizioni di viaggio e di opere d’arte si intende indagare il nesso tra lettura, percezione visiva, scrittura e pittura.
