Summer School - Comparative and Transnational History: Theories, Methodology and Case Studies, 10-13 September 2018, Italy 

The Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute (EUI) is happy to announce its twelfth Summer School in Transnational and Comparative History, which will take place in September 2018 in the historic Villa Salviati, looking out over the hills of Florence.

The EUI Department of History and Civilization is a major centre for the study of comparative and transnational European history and of European history in a global perspective. Its annual Summer School has established itself as an exciting and stimulating experience for postgraduate students. People who are interested in political, social, cultural, intellectual or economic history, will have a unique opportunity to broaden their research interests and methodological reflection.

The summer school will combine discussion of methodological issues in global, transnational and comparative history with case studies by leading specialists from the European University Institute and other major universities, who will also provide feedback on the students' own research projects. This year’s presentations, covering early modern, modern and contemporary history, will concern the connected history of empires and imperialism, global enlightenments, transnational history of science, the history of gender, social action and nationalist politics in border regions, and the history of international organizations and natural resources.

Participants will also have the chance to meet EUI doctoral researchers, participate in the academic life of this centre of excellence, and visit the Historical Archives of the European Union. Information will also be given on possibilities for pursuing doctoral studies at the European University Institute.

They will also have an opportunity to explore Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
