The School on Global Studies and Critical Theory is a new summer program jointly promoted by Duke University, the Department of History and Cultures at the University of Bologna, and University of Virginia. We think that the so-called global age needs a radical rethinking of our theoretical tools and critical exchange among different research fields.

This is why every 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.
