Conveners: Prof. Heinz-Gerhard Haupt and Prof. Bartolomé Yun-Casalilla
Venue: Florence, Italy - Villa Schifanoia, Sala Europa
Are you convinced that national history and its approaches are limited? Do you want to look beyond the nation you are living in? In this case, you might be interested in HEC 2006 Summer School which will take place in one of the most evocative places in Florence: Villa Schifanoia.
The Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute is a major centre of comparative and transnational European history. The courses will allow you to continue and to broaden your research interests in this field. Well known specialists from the European University Institute and from other European outstanding Institutions will present interesting ways of writing the history of Europe as well as raising important questions on its development.
At the same time, you will have the opportunity to meet our researchers, who are preparing their Ph.D. in this European institution, participate in a seminar in this centre of excellence, visit the library and have time to get all information about how to apply to the European University Institute.
In the evening, you will have also the opportunity to visit Florence, one of the most beautiful towns of the world!
