The new Pirelli Foundation and Fondazione ISEC training course for teachers is ready to go.
Cinema & History, the free training and refresher course for secondary school teachers, organised by the Pirelli Foundation and Fondazione ISEC, is back again this year, now in its ninth edition. The course, which consists of six online events, focuses on Europe, from its creation to the events of the year that has just come to an end, which have forced us to take a new look at its borders, raising some questions about the role and prerogatives of the European Union.
“Europe is Us: Politics, Economics and Society from the Origins to Globalisation” is the title of the course, which will provide the tools needed for a better understanding of Europe in a variety of diachronic approaches, examining the history of ideas, of political and economic history, and of culture. The meetings will also be an opportunity to think about citizenship in terms of multiple and supranational rights, duties and affiliations.
The first five lectures, which will be held on Mondays from 4 to 6 pm, with the first on 22 February 2021, will include some films presented and commented on by representatives of the Beltrade cinema in Milan. Students will be able to stream the films.
The course will end with a sixth event, a workshop devoted to the use of audio-visual sources for teaching, put on by the Archivio Nazionale Cinematografico della Resistenza in Turin.
Registration for the course is free but required. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 19 February 2021. The meetings will be live-streamed on the Microsoft Teams platform. For further information please write to email@example.com.
