Letteratura latina dalle origini all'età augustea. Il corso propone una panoramica dei generi letterari tra repubblica e primo impero. La nascita e lo sviluppo della letteratura latina furono profondamente condizionati da un lato dall'influenza della cultura greca con la quale i Romani entrarono in contatto a partire dal II sec. a. C. soprattutto per la loro politica espansionistica nel Mediterraneo e poi in Oriente; dall'altro dalle pressioni esercitate dal potere politico che richiedeva al cittadino di prestare la propria attività innanzitutto a favore della res publica.

The Beginning Game Programming with C# course is all about learning how to develop video games using the C# programming language. Why use C# instead of C++, Java, ActionScript, or some other programming language you may have heard of? First, using C# lets us use the open-source MonoGame framework, which help us quickly develop games for Windows, Android, iOS, Mac OS X, and others. Second, the Unity game engine is very popular with indie game developers, and C# is one of the programming languages you can use in the Unity environment. And finally, C# is a really good language for learning how to program.

Our relationship to Beethoven is a deep and paradoxical one. For many musicians, he represents a kind of holy grail: His music has an intensity, rigor, and profundity which keep us in its thrall, and it is perhaps unequalled in the interpretive, technical, and even spiritual challenges it poses to performers. At the same time, Beethoven’s music is casually familiar to millions of people who do not attend concerts or consider themselves musically inclined. Two hundred years after his death, he is everywhere in the culture, yet still represents its summit. This course takes an inside-out look at the 32 piano sonatas from the point of view of a performer.

Nella letteratura latina affiorano costantemente l'idea della identità romana, il rapporto con il diverso, il relazionarsi con popoli altri da sé: basti pensare a Terenzio che nasce in Africa o a Cecilio Stazio, commediografo di origine gallica solo per citarne alcuni. Il problema si accentua in età tardoantica, quel periodo che si fa partire dal III sec. d. C. e che alcuni addirittura anticipano alla fine del II.

You pick up your iPhone while waiting in line at a coffee shop. You google a not-so-famous actor, get linked to a Wikipedia entry listing his recent movies and popular YouTube clips of several of them. You check out user reviews on Amazon and pick one, download that movie on BitTorrent or stream that in Netflix. But suddenly the WiFi logo on your phone is gone and you're on 3G.

This is a master course given in Moscow at the Laboratory of Algebraic Geometry of the National Research University Higher School of Economics by Valery Gritsenko, a professor of University Lille 1, France. Jacobi forms are holomorphic functions in two complex variables. They are modular in one variable and abelian (or double periodic) in another variable. The theory of Jacobi modular forms became an independent research subject after the famous book of Martin Eichler and Don Zagier “Jacobi modular forms” (Progress in Mathematics, vol. 55, 1985) which was cited more than a thousand times in research papers.

Se per l’Occidente mancano testimonianze che non siano quelle indirette di trattazioni specifiche come l’Institutio oratoria di Quintiliano, l’Oriente ha restituito una serie di testimoni diretti delle forme dell’insegnamento del latino,tra I a.C. e VI d.C.: favorita fondamentalmente dall’occupazione militare e dai bisogni dell’amministrazione per tutta la prima età imperiale, nelle province eccentriche dell’Impero, la circolazione del latino venne ulteriormente incentivata da una politica che lo identificava con la lingua dell’amministrazione (e del diritto) a partire dal III secolo. Continuo, infatti, è il contatto dei latinofoni con allofoni che, spesso, si misero alla prova con l’apprendimento della lingua di Roma.
