The Bologna-Duke Summer School on Global Studies and Critical Theory. The School on Global Studies and Critical Theory is a new summer program jointly promoted by Duke University and the Department of History, Cultures and Civilization of the University of Bologna in the conviction that the so-called global age makes necessary a radical rethinking of our theoretical tools and critical exchange among different research fields. Each year in a lively and stimulating intellectual and cultural environment outstanding scholars will offer to faculty, postgraduate and graduate students, lectures, intensive courses and seminars on one specific topic of this contemporary global turn, encouraging the collective production of knowledge and critical thought.
