Are you convinced that national history and its approaches are limited? Do you
want to look beyond the nation you are living in? In this case, you might be
interested in HEC 2005 Summer School which will take place in one of the most
evocative places in Florence: Villa Schifanoia.

The Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute
is a major centre of comparative and transnational European history. The courses
will allow you to continue and to broaden your research interests in this field.
Well known specialists from the European University Institute and from other
European outstanding Institutions will present interesting ways of writing the
history of Europe as well as raising important questions on its development.

At the same time, you will have the opportunity to meet our researchers, who are
preparing their Ph.D. in this European institution, participate in a seminar in
this centre of excellence, visit the library and the archives of the European
Union and have time to get all information about how to apply to the European
University Institute.

In the evening, you will have also the opportunity to visit Florence, one of the
most beautiful towns of the world!
