The goal of the PhD in Cultural and Environmental Heritage is to bridge the many different perspectives involved in the study of cultural and environmental processes under one, cross-disciplinary perspective, favouring a new approach that focuses on transversal research questions rather than on issues limited to an individual discipline. To date, the study of Cultural and Environmental Heritage has privileged mono-disciplinary perspectives that could achieve excellent levels of speacialisation. Fully integrated, multi-disciplinary approaches entailing a close collaboration between humanities, biological sciences, social sciences, and law – such as the one proposed in the present programme – are still severely underrepresented. This transversal research will be conducted into shared structures and laboratories, and will aim to train Doctors of Philosophy who are highly specialised and yet able to participate to multidisciplinary research teams.
