Graduate Programme ‘Changing cultures, societies, practices’

The Graduate Programme “Cultures, Societies, Changing Practices” offers a multidisciplinary course of study at Master’s and Doctoral level in the Humanities and Social Sciences. This high-level training, open to students from all over the world, is research-oriented and mobilises the skills and knowledge of the humanities and social sciences in order to understand the global transition in modern societies.

This Graduate Programme is linked to the “Changing Cultures, Societies and Practices” Hub. The Graduate Programme is therefore structured around the three challenges of the Hub:

  • Challenge 1 – Changing institutions and organisations;
  • Challenge 2 – Vulnerabilities and inclusions;
  • Challenge 3 – Europe, historical constructions and transition dynamics.

Various initiatives are in place to encourage students to develop an approach to historical, cultural and institutional transformations that enables them to grasp the creative dynamics of change that can manifest in different organisational designs marked by innovation, in resilient individual or collective practices or in innovative cultural productions.

The Graduate Programme aim to create a stimulating and interdisciplinary intellectual environment for students. It relies on converging skills within the University of Lille in the field of Humanities and Social Sciences, in coherence with the actions carried out by the CNRS and other research actors, to develop disciplinary and multidisciplinary studies that aim to respond to the issues and challenges of the contemporary world by interacting with the other Hubs of the I-SITE in a global dynamic of research on transition.


Opening session and weekly lectures

Lectures specifically intended for Graduate Programme students are planned during a joint opening session (15-16 and 17 September 2021) and on Friday afternoons. The themes and speakers are chosen to provide students with a high level of training on the issues specific to the Graduate Programme, with particular attention to the interdisciplinary approach and the international dimension .
