CIVIS announces the opening of the registration for the CIVIS course “European Renaissance”. It will take place in Madrid between 13 and 17 June 2022 and will include classes, seminars, and workshops. CIVIS offers a number of 36 scholarships to support the physical mobility to Spain.
The short CIVIS course “European Renaissance” invites students to explore the Renaissance Culture as a key to the construction of a European Cultural Tradition based on the Classical Heritage, from Petrarch to Erasmus.
The programme attempts to respond to the objective of contributing to the restoration of civic life in the European academic culture after months of uncertainty and fragility imposed upon us by the coronavirus pandemic. It will therefore focus on the variety of shifting modes that emerged, at the beginning of the Early Modern period in Europe, as a cultural response to the economic and social demands upheld on the European community by modern epidemics, in terms of faith, social roles, political forms, aesthetic experiences etc.
This course has a strong interdisciplinary perspective, from philosophy to religion, from literature and linguistics to figurative arts and music; from history and historiography to social and natural sciences.
Main topics addressed
- Art and Literature
- Epic and Lyrical Poetry
- Politics and Society
- Religion and Philosophy
- History of Printing
- Travelling and Intercultural relations
- History and Historiography
- Humanistic Philology
This mobility course is open to Master and PhD students at the nine CIVIS member universities enrolled or interested in the following field of studies: literature, history, philosophy, politics, art history and music. A B1 level of English is required.
Students should apply by 31 January 2022. The application form will be available soon. For further information, please contact email@example.com.
