Senior seminar 2017/2018

Single lectures and 8-hour short intensive courses taught by guests and visitings from all over the world – A.Y. 2017/2018

SENSEM

Senior Seminar in Global Humanities is conceived as an interdisciplinary space of discussion around the so called "spatial turn" that is investing all fields of the Humanities (history, anthropology, geography, philosophy, political theory).

Students are expected to attend all lectures and at least three short intensive courses. Senior seminar is a pass/no pass class and, in order to get 6 credits (CFU), students are required to deliver a 3000-word paper at the end of the academic year on one of the short intensive courses attended.
