Summer school June 2023


This Jean Monnet Module GOLDSTEIN will offer three summer schools, one summer school of 32 hours every year.

The summer schools are open to anyone interested in the topic, from graduate students to journalists and policymakers. In selecting applications, however, preference will be given to doctoral students, particularly from the area of political science.

The schools will offer a panorama of the strategies to debunk different forms of political uses of denialisms and conspiracy theories from an interdisciplinary perspective: political theory, political philosophy, history, political science, international relations, legal theory, in order to offer a comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon.


THE FIRST SUMMER SCHOOL, of 32 hours of face-to-face lectures, which will confer 2 CFUs, will be held at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies FROM MONDAY, JUNE 19th, TO FRIDAY, JUNE 23th, 2023
