APPLICATIONS | PIUDHist - Inter-University History Doctoral Programme: Change and Continuity in a Global World

PIUDHIST is an inter-university doctoral programme in which History is viewed from an inter-disciplinary point of view. Despite its unique character, History is regarded here as a field of knowledge which cannot do without a permanent cross fertilization with other areas in the humanities and the social sciences. In our vision, this is also why we consider apposite to attach, as a subtitle for this programme, the words “change and continuity in a global world”.

 

The course work on offer is organized into four basic thematic axes, of which students will choose two:

  • Social dynamics and political structures
  • Institutions and economic development
  • Empires, colonialism and post-colonialism
  • Intellectual and socio-cultural movements

 

Each of these themes corresponds to an area of teaching and research for which it is recognized that sufficient expertise exists among faculty members. They are also historiographical domains which are crucial to any serious effort to understand the formation of contemporary societies, their roots in the past, and the processes of continuity and change which have brought them to their present day configuration. Students are thus meant to acquire an ample grounding in social, political and economic history, in the history of colonialism and post colonialism, and in the history of ideas and of cultural and religious movements, but always within a clear conceptual framework and on the basis of a solid methodological backing and a persistent concern for the empirical dimension of the issues studied.
