The PhD program in History aims at training graduate students with a solid background in historical studies to achieve a high scientific level in the different branches of the historical research. It allows to deepen the knowledge and the analytic skills of the students about the historical processes in different periods, from the pre-classical to the contemporary age, and in a multiple, European and non-European, spatial context.
The research methodologies are based mainly on historical comparative method and are characterized by a high degree of scientific interdisciplinarity.
The present PhD program in History, which has been running since 2013 (Cycle XXIX), arises from the coupling of two former courses already active at the University of Pavia, whose training experience it carries on: the PhD program in “Institutions, Ideas, Political Movements in Contemporary Europe” – afterwards reorganized as PhD in “ History ” – and the PhD program in “ History and civilisations of the Mediterranean Area in Pre-classical, Classical and Middle Age. Spaces, cultures, interactions ”.
The PhD program offers two different curricula, which besides a multidisciplinary approch will provide specific formative elements:
A) CIVILISATIONS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AREA IN PRE-CLASSICAL, CLASSICAL AND MIDDLE AGE
B) SOCIETY, POLITICS AND INSTITUTIONS IN MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY AGE
