Italian Culture and Society

The faculty of Italian Culture and Society is committed to two main lines of research and teaching: a cross-disciplinary approach to Italian culture and society, and the development of Critical Sustainability Studies.

Through our teaching, research projects, academic events, publications and outreach initiatives, we offer students and the general public the possibility to explore some of the most significant aspects of Italian culture and society from original perspectives, and also to join current debates on sustainability, the environmental crisis, and climate change. Our teaching, research, and initiatives contribute to the sustainability strategy of the University of St.Gallen (see 2021-2022 Report on Responsibility and Sustainability)

Our interdisciplinary Team includes experts in both Italian Studies and Environmental and Critical Sustainability Studies, committed to a great thematic and methodological diversity.
