Two of the four credits reserved for other knowledge must be compulsorily achieved by passing a B2-level foreign language test chosen from English, French, Spanish and German.

In A.Y. 2022/2023, the English language course is taught by Prof. Justin Rainey (go to teaching tab).

Students who intend to take the B2 level test in a language other than English (choice of French, Spanish and German) are invited to contact the Teaching Office:

N.B. The CdS recognizes certifications of the same level or higher. If you have a valid certification attesting to your foreign language proficiency, you can submit it to the Committee for the Recognition of 'Other' credits.



The following workshops will be activated in 2022-2023


Permanent seminar on local history - Prof. Anna Stagno

The Permanent Seminar on Local History is a well-established experience (started in 1992-1993) that has the explicit aim of integrating teaching and research activities with a strong focus on the dimension of local analysis, wants to propose an opportunity for dialogue around objects of common interest that characterize the work of those practicing historical investigations today, starting from documentary sources as well as from the field.  In the first part of the year, the speakers involved (and/or invited) will propose case studies with a focus on the procedures of analysis and use of sources and their relationship to the local context of source production. Beginning in March, the meetings will focus on the individual research paths of registered participants who decide to opt for independent research work: by February, those involved will prepare a personal research proposal--to be structured with a summary and bibliographical apparatus--and will discuss its progress, at subsequent meetings.

Themes and sources of research may be proposed by students or, if requested, suggested by faculty.

Each year the seminar focuses on a specific theme.

The Workshop includes one meeting per week (always on Monday afternoons) beginning January 30, 2023.

Laboratorio di storia di genere e della sessualità in età contemporanea – Prof.ssa Enrica Asquer


Destinatari: studenti della Magistrale in Scienze Storiche

Contenuti: Il laboratorio si propone di offrire agli/alle studenti della Magistrale in Scienze storiche un percorso di approfondimento e confronto seminariale su alcuni testi che, nella seconda metà del Novecento, hanno segnato l’emergere di nuove sensibilità e forme di consapevolezza a partire dai corpi sessuati e dall’aspirazione alla loro piena espressione e autodeterminazione: testi rilevanti della storia del neofemminismo e di altri soggetti e movimenti collettivi legati alla rivendicazione di libertà nella sfera della sessualità e delle identità di genere. Lungi dal tracciare un percorso lineare e progressivo, il laboratorio si sforzerà di evidenziare i conflitti, aspri e fecondi, attraverso cui la dialettica tra i concetti di sesso, sessualità e genere si è evoluta nel tempo, dentro e al lato della compagine femminista, intrecciandosi anche con altre elaborazioni politico-teoriche, in particolare quelle ruotanti intorno alla razza e alla classe.

Durata: Sono previsti 4 incontri da 2 ore:

- 15 maggio, ore 15-17

- 16 maggio, ore 17-19

- 22 maggio, ore 15-17

- 24 maggio, ore 15-17

Ai/lle frequentanti è richiesto di seguire 4 videolezioni introduttive, cui si aggiunge lo studio autonomo richiesto ai fini della presentazione di un elaborato finale.
