International Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme 2010–2015
“The Traditions of Mediterranean Humanism and the Challenges of Our Times: the Frontiers of Humanity” is an international interdisciplinary doctoral programme within the Faculty of “Artes Liberales” at the University of Warsaw, generously supported by the Foundation for Polish Science. The Programme began in the Spring of 2010 with the selection of thirteen Ph.D. students from among over 160 applicants who responded to a global call for applications. For eight semesters the students took part in a series of biweekly Programme Seminars together with thirteen professors and two postdoctoral fellows. This systematic and well-integrated teamwork brought together young researchers and senior scholars from a wide array of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences: anthropology, art history, Classics and Neo-Latin studies, gender studies, philosophy, comparative literature, linguistics, history, Balkan studies, Hellenic studies, Polish, Italian, Spanish and French.
