Course Description

The Seasonal School is a five-day intensive programme that introduces modern China’s economic, social, political, and legal issues through the lens of leading research activities promoted by Sant’Anna Institutes. Participants will have the opportunity to develop the necessary background to comprehend China’s history and current challenges. More specifically, the 40 hours-long school will be characterized by a strong multidisciplinary approach and will be focused on the encounter with people, countries, way of thinking and systems connected with China.
The Seasonal School will explore Chinese innovation ecosystem, geopolitical and international relations, and legal systems to ensure disciplinary and intellectual diversity, in order to guarantee the pluralism of disciplinary and intellectual perspectives.
Since China has become a more assertive actor in the international order, shaping its own system of alliances and building new regional and commercial architecture, the Seasonal School will allow European and Italian scholars “outside China” to examine the evolution, prospects, and challenges of this change.
The Seasonal School also offers a wide range of cultural, social, and networking events in Pisa in collaboration with some of the city’s cultural realities (such as Cinema Arsenale, Libreria Ghibellina, and others): book presentations, successful Sino Italian company case studies, stories of scholars, academics, and passionate people.
The Seasonal School honours Filippo Nicosia, former Italian Consul General in Chongqing.
