The Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute (EUI) is happy to announce its eleventh Summer School in Transnational and Comparative History, which will take place in September 2016 in the historic Badia Fiesolana, 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. Whether you are interested in political, social, cultural, intellectual or economic history, it will give you a unique opportunity to broaden your research interests and methodological reflection.

The summer school will combine discussion of methodological issues in 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 seminars, covering early modern, modern and contemporary history, will concern gender, nationalisms, colonialisms, material culture, and the history of science and medicine in a transnational perspective.
