Applications for academic year 2018/2019

Candidaturas para o ano lectivo 2018/2019

Published on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

PIUDHIST is an inter-university doctoral programme in which History is viewed from an inter-disciplinary point of view. Despite its unique character, History is regarded here as a field of knowledge which cannot do without a permanent cross fertilization with other areas in the humanities and the social sciences. In our vision, this is also why we consider apposite to attach, as a subtitle for this programme, the words “change and continuity in a global world”. It takes place in Lisbon, Portugal, jointly organized by the University of Lisbon, University of Évora, Portuguese Catholic University and ISCTE - Lisbon University Institute. Courses and seminars run in Portuguese and English. Enrolled students receive monitoring assistance by tutors and supervisors.
