Call for Applications: Global Cultures (GLOC) at University of Bologna

Deadline: rolling, see website for details.

The University of Bologna is pleased to announce that the call for applications to the second cycle degree/two-year master curriculum in Global Cultures (GLOC) is now open:

Global Cultures (GLOC) is intended to be a radically new approach to the humanities. Students are invited to critically analyse the “shock of the global” that is shaping our lives and societies and to abandon the traditional Eurocentric and state-centred approaches and methodologies. Hybridisation among methods and research fields, experimentation of new forms of interaction between academics and students, and a strong emphasis on cross-cultural and transnational connections are all essential elements for a new critical perspective in the study of past and present academic discourse.

The programme strongly emphasizes experimentation of new research tools and methods of teaching, with faculty research directly available to students in the form of seminars, labs, guided individual research, etc., and with a special focus on new opportunities offered by the increasing digitalization of the humanities. As a member of a small graduate cohort admitted each year, students will join a close-knit and dynamic community with global research projects that incorporate diverse media and methods.
