Professors, Ph.D. researchers and fellows of the Department of History form a vibrant intellectual community of study interactions and work exchanges.
Research in this stimulating environment is defined by themes and perspectives from the distinctive departmental research profile; a variety of specific research projects; the key research interests of the faculty members; working groups established and managed by PhD researchers; workshops, lectures, colloquia and conferences where questions are shared and contextualized within a broader scholarly framework; a wide range of publications, including working papers, articles, essays and books.
Several tools and facilities support departmental research activities: the EUI Library, where a team of experienced librarians and IT specialists manages a large collection of books, journals and digital resources; the EUI Centre for Academic Literacies and Languages, which offers language and academic writing skills courses; exchange programmes with the top universities of Europe, the United States, China and Russia; specialized research tools for Historians.
