European universities in a shifting global context.
This course is part of the PhD programme put on by the project 'European Universities - Critical Futures' The project, led by CHEF, has created a continually expanding network of European researchers, starting from 18 centres of research on higher education, which PhD students from anywhere are welcome to join. The project's aims are to generate a new agenda for research on universities in Europe; to create an inter-generational learning community in which PhDs and early stage researchers are integrated into all the project's agenda-setting activities; and to re-set the conditions of dialogue between researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders.

Researching Transnational Television
Television has always been shaped by transnational forces, both ‘marked’ and unmarked (Hjort 2010) related to media production and production values (cinematography, narrative and generic forms), distribution and audience reception. These trends have expanded far beyond the Western world with, for example, formats traveling to the Arabic region, Latin America and the rest of the world. South Korean television drama has proven highly successful across and beyond East Asia, entering the Middle East and the US-American market.

AGAPEISTIC ETHICS : Exploring the Second-Person Perspective
The concept of perspective seems to be tied to the first person as the central point from which any perspective ultimately arises. “The ‘I think’ must be able to accompany all my representations,” as Kant wrote. Phenomenologists, likewise, will argue that whoever or whatever is given, is intentionally given for me, i.e., in a sphere of minimal selfawareness. The challenge of exploring the second person perspective is therefore to conceive of a perspective where I am I only to the extent that I am also a Thou. In what is arguably the founding text of the philosophy of dialogue, Martin Buber thus wrote that: “The human being becomes an I by the Thou.”

PhD Masterclass with Samuel Moyn (Yale)
This ph.d.-masterclass with Samuel Moyn (Yale) will offer participants a chance of discussing texts by Samuel Moyn, reflecting on how his work relates to their own research. Samuel Moyn is Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale Law School and a Professor of History at Yale University. He has written several books in his fields of European intellectual history and human rights history, including The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History (2010), and edited or coedited a number of others. His most recent books are Christian Human Rights (2015), based on Mellon Distinguished Lectures at the University of Pennsylvania in fall 2014, and Not Enough: Human Rights in an Unequal World (2018). Currently he is working on a new book on the origins of humane war. The texts (total of about 50-70 pages) for the masterclass are, broadly, chosen from within Sam Moyns contributions to the field of intellectual history, with a key attention towards questions concerning methodology and global intellectual history.

Analysing practice and policy in educational institutions: Theoretical and professional dilemmas for research.
The course will provide an analysis of the role institutions as schools, kindergartens, daycare centers and families play in education through developing pedagogical work based on social interaction. By adopting a psychological perspective, the course will help understand the complexity of educational processes that emerge in those contexts through human activity and the artifacts, tools and signs that mediate it.

Technology, subjectivity and affect
How do we make sense of a time in which we are constantly and everywhere surrounded by technology? To be sure, we increasingly relate to the world, to each other, and to ourselves by means of modern technologies. As a consequence, technology should not be viewed simply as 'external' tools that we use to master the world but rather as part and parcel of our subjectivity, since technology is integral to the ways in which we reflect upon and shape ourselves today. Technology often plays an ambiguous role, however. In our technologized life, modern technology both appears to be the problem and the solution to urgent global problems, ranging from combatting cybercrimes to deforestation and global warming. While we recognize that modern technologies have numerous deleterious effects in our collective and private lives, we refuse to give up on them, instead investing our hopes in the promise of technology to solve our problems.

Reuse practices in Roman period and late antique cities
The reuse of architecture and sculpture for the construction of new buildings was an integral part of the process of transformation of cities in the Roman world and particularly in late antiquity. Besides being a way of optimising the use of existing resources, a reused architectural or sculptural element could acquire different meanings or functions (for example, aesthetical or ideological) depending on the way in which it was was embedded into a wall.

Urban resilience in the ancient world
While resilience has been a hotly debated theme in archaeology, it has also become clear that archaeological evidence, due to its “momentary” or “mixed” nature often only offers a glimpse into long-term complex processes. It is seldom possible to disentangle long-term processes from one archaeological context. Such disentangling requires a multifaceted approach where evidence from different contexts are pulled together and evaluated both on their own terms but also in relation to each other.

New Perspectives on Archive Archaeology
Archives are an indispensable tool for deciphering the past. What composes an archive is variable almost anything can become part of an archive but no matter what type of documentation, such materials tell the stories. Archives can document objects at specific points in the afterlives, or develop historiography by providing indirect evidence of the people who collected, created, and compiled the archive. In sum, archival materials have the potential to be more than dry and “objective” documents. Archives bring past stories to life.
