Senior seminar in Global Humanities – 2021/2022

8-hour short intensive courses taught by guests and visitings from all over the world – A.Y. 2021/2022

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 at least four (4) 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 on one of the short intensive courses attended, starting from the first exam session in May.

Students must email their paper to raffaele.laudani@unibo.it by registering on AlmaEsami one week before the exam date. Students do not need to be present at the exam. 

CONTACTS: Prof. Raffaele Laudani
