the Centre

project of excellence

Starting from a collaborative stance, the newly established Centre for Advanced Studies in Mobility and the Humanities, hosted at DiSSGeA, is committed to running the Mobility and the Humanities Seminar Series. Key speakers in the field are regularly invited to further elaborate on, and advance, their research activities. This way, the Centre configures itself as an international research hub for the humanistic study of mobility, a place where intellectual exchange and hospitality take a crucial part in the development of brand-new research directions. The Centre aims at stimulating collaboration around new basic and interdisciplinary research, consolidating the international standing of DiSSGeA and making it more attractive for young researchers, while clearly identifying its scientific mission as a Department of Excellence.
