Rome and Florence offer an ideal ground to explore the historiography of art history, history and adjacent fields from both a historical and a contemporary perspective. This Minor program, hosted and financed by the Dutch Institutes in Rome and Florence, will discuss a large variety of methodologies in order to understand present-day Italy through its historical developments. It will stimulate students to critically assess their disciplinary orientation in a profoundly cross-disciplinary context.
This Minor also offers a basic proficiency in the Italian language by means of an introductory intensive language course followed by a reading laboratory. Skills such as archival research and the use of historical bibliographic material are trained on location during working sessions in historical libraries and archives.
The program starts with two months at the KNIR, followed by two months at the NIKI. The program is open to a maximum of 10 selected 3rd year BA students from KNIR and NIKI partner universities. Applicants have obtained a minimum of 90 ECTS by the time of application and 120 ECTS by the time of the start of the program.
