Rules for application: MA students
Interested MA students are invited to submit a pre-proposal of a MA/ PhD research project which could be carried out at UNIBO or UdeM or a third Institution including a compulsory mobility period at one of the involved institutions.
Research topics should address the broad area of: Relevance of the ancient world: Contrasting models and transformations.
We are particularly interested in discussing draft research projects addressing, on the one hand, the study of intercultural exchanges (connection, hybridization, conflict) among the Mediterranean and other areas of Asia, Africa, Europe.


On the other hand, we welcome study proposal on identities, alterities and differences within the social structures, the study of socio-economic and power inequalities, cultural approaches to building of collective identities in the ancient period (800 BCE-800 CE).
Attention to processes of environmental transformation, spaces of interconnection and critical periodisation as e.g. Hellenism or Late Antiquity will be of special interest. Draft projects could also encompasse research into other historical periods and settings, which relate to the ancient world through reception/heritage/contrast of models or other kind of connection.
A significant comparative approach between different historical contexts of the ancient world is of potential interest as well.
Draft research Projects should be primarily aimed at developing a MA thesis and/or a future application for PhD
programmes offered by the participating Institutions. Draft research projects need to include and integrate in the research proposal one or two mobility periods.

Within the workshop professors from the graduate schools of UNIBO and UdEM and guests from other distinguished Institutions will discuss the research proposal and will give advice for improvement and feasibility of the candidate applications.
