Institutionalization and professionalization of historical studies in Italy after unification: Institutionsof higher education and research in Tuscany

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The Research Unit of the Università per Stranieri di Siena will focus on the process of professionalization of the discipline of history. The University will be the main field of research. A general investigation will survey history teaching practices at Italian Universities, examining documents from a long time-span. After that, research will focus on some case-studies. Two such examples are the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa and the philological and philosophic department of the Istituto di Studi Superiori Pratici e di Perfezionamento of Florence (Institute for Higher Practical Studies and Training). They were two important study centers of Medieval History where it was possible to try out new and original didactic experiences. It is possible to reconstruct their scientific and professionalizing function through their students’ careers.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
