PIMo Training School, ‘Moving Goods for Charity Across the Mediterranean (15th–19th centuries), 24-27 January 2022
Deadline for Applications November 20 2021.
This training school, hosted jointly by the Centro Studi sui Monti di Pietà (Bologna) and Biblioteca Roncioniana (Prato), explores the history of charitable forms of exchange in the Mediterranean space. The School’s main objective is to offer an opportunity for research development, training, and exchange of ideas for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working in the fields of Mediterranean Studies, Economic History, Religious Studies, Late Medieval and Early Modern History, and Material Culture.
The School will be held in Bologna (24-26 January) and Prato (27 January). This will allow participants to visit places like the Confraternita di Santa Maria della Vita, with its unique iconographic program, and the Archivio Storico del Monte di Pietà di Bologna (where we will be introduced directly to its documents), while the last day in Prato will offer the opportunity to visit the exhibition Paper in Motion: Information and the Economy of Knowledge in the Early Modern Mediterranean, which will open on the same day, with a guided tour by Prof. José María Pérez Fernández (University of Granada and PIMo WG3 Leader).
Expenses (travel and daily allowance) will be reimbursed in line with relevant COST rules.
We would ask PIMo members to please share this opportunity widely and encourage doctoral or postdoctoral researchers to apply.
