The aim of this course "Mountain to Mountain" is to compare two areas, the Appalachians in the USA and the Alps in Austria, by reading and watching texts and films.

This course is a collaboration with the Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, with the students of a class by Jeanne Dubino, Professor of English and Global Studies at the Department of Cultural, Gender, and Global Studies. We will be reading and discussing different texts in seven sessions, that is three texts from different genres dealing with the Appalachians and the Alps:
