The Historical Studies curriculum is particularly dedicated to the History of European societies, providing the opportunity for in-depth studies and research on: identities and their construction (national, transnational, professional, religious and gender identities); the relationship between cultural development and socio-economic and political development; political and institutional cultures transformation from ancient history to contemporary history. Moreover, the curriculum focuses on intersections, hybridization, the mobility of people, objects, texts and ideas through an analytical approach that highlights global and transnational experiences, comparative approaches, without overlooking conflicts, inequalities, and power struggle. Another research field is that of digital humanities, also exploring their dialogue with the public dimension.
