Law and Human Sciences - 2019-2020
Description of the course
Educational Objectives and Research Areas
Based on the assumption that a greater understanding of institutions and social systems can be achieved by combining legal, historical and philosophical knowledge, this PhD program intends to provide PhD students with research methods and cultural supports which allow blending complementary knowledges. Contact points between the law and the social sciences immediately emerge when law is considered as a vehicle for deeper knowledge, for values which are not merely imposed, but shared and created by a social group, as the law, history and philosophy share a language and sense-constitutive operations. The type of interdisciplinarity which this PhD program aims at is not actualized in establishing atypical disciplinary paths or in awarding hybrid specializations. This, indeed, may expose young researchers to the considerable inconvenience of losing, at the end of the program, a clear and well-recognizable title and scientific identity in the community of scholars and professionals. Rather, the interdisciplinarity – the distinctive key of the course – is intended as a dialogue among neighboring disciplines, which singularly preserve their individuality, but which through discussion and reciprocal interaction improve their knowledge and possibility of in-depth analysis, in the effort to develop the study of issues of common interest. The innovative and distinctive feature of this PhD program is, therefore, identified in these methodological premises, while the research objects may vary, following the opportunities suggested by the interests of the attendees or by the network of external collaborations. A second characteristic element of this PhD program consists in the internationalization of the educational offer and in the possibility of conducting research abroad. This is the reason why the PhD program faculty has been extended to foreign colleagues from several universities, who in various ways collaborate to the training of our PhD students, and also the reason underlying our collaboration with the UNESCO Chair, which has recently been established. We thus hope to increase the future opportunities for our PhD students, offering them concrete prospects in the national and international academic and professional world.
