The Department of Cultural Heritage at the University of Bologna is a thriving and engaged interdisciplinary environment where social and cultural anthropology recently joined archaeology, history, physical anthropology, art history, ecology, musicology and classics. The department is growing (with plans to develop anthropology in particular), and is situated in the university’s peaceful and beautiful Ravenna campus. In line with the University of Bologna’s policies of dynamic internationalisation, and of equal opportunities, international applications are especially encouraged, as are female applicants, and those from ethnic and other minorities.
