The Programme aims to train experts in the various fields of economic, law, political, historical, linguistic, philological-literary and artistic subjects, whose skills will be further enhanced by the direct analysis of sources in the following languages: Arabic, Aramaic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Chinese, Korean, Hebrew, Georgian, Japanese, Hindi, Persian, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Turkish, Urdu, Yiddish.
This programme takes place in Venice (Italy, Europe) on the main campus of Ca Foscari, one of the leading European universities.
The PhD Programme focuses on the in-depth study of the languages spoken in the Near East, North Africa, Southern Asia and Far East, taught at Ca Foscari University. In particular, they are: Arabic, Aramaic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Chinese, Korean, Hebrew, Georgian, Japanese, Hindi, Persian, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Turkish, Urdu, Yiddish.
The geographical area where these languages are spoken embraces a wide variety of countries: from Morocco to India, from Caucasus and ex-Soviet Central Asia to Sri Lanka, from China to Japan and Korea. These are countries with a very ancient civilization, now oriented to a rapid economic development. Therefore, this PhD Programme is designed in a way to stimulate research on both classical studies and those related to the contemporary world.
Language study, that is definitely an asset in this PhD Programme, is connected with a merely philological-literary approach or can be exploited within researches on artistic, scientific or contemporary sectors (economics, sociology, international politics, etc.).
