PhD in Diversity Management and Governance

Report at the end of the Academic Year

On December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd the second series of seminars for the PhD in Diversity Management and Governance continued in Faenza. As in the first round held in November, the three days focused respectively on the themes of gender, ethnicity, and generations. This cycle was characterised by the presence of guest lecturers, with the PhD Board in the role of discussants. On this occasion, 1st generation students also formalised the transition to the second year.

As usual, the inter-disciplinary seminars touched several aspects of diversity management under a variety of perspectives and case studies. Classes started with the visit by Rosa Amorevole, Councillor for Equal Opportunities of the Region Emilia Romagna. During the meeting, students had the opportunity to learn about the Councillor’s work and functions as well as to discuss the relevance of gender to their own research projects. During the second day, the presentations by sociologist Maura de Bernart and political scientist Agata Dziewulska focused on conflict and post-conflict management in multi-ethnic contexts, paying attention to both theoretical perspectives and empirical case studies. On the final day of seminars, anthropologist Bruno Riccio presented and led a discussion about second generation migrants and broader socio-anthropological perspectives on generations.
