This annual 1-credit workshop, taught by Professor Mark Daniel Cohen, takes place on one of the days off during each of the 2016 Spring/Summer sessions in the Division of Philosophy, Art and Critical Thought at The EGS.

The European Graduate School Evening Lectures

Between March 20th and April 9th, the European Graduate School is hosting a series of evening lectures at St. Elmo in Valletta, with notable philosophers, scholars and artists. The lectures begin at 8pm and are free and open to the public.

The European Graduate School licensed as European University

As of February 2016, The National Commission for Further and Higher Education in Malta has licensed The European Graduate School (EGS) within The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) as a University (Licence number: 2015:007), offering the following programmes:

Digital Design, Architecture and Urbanism - Important Update

In 2016, the Division of Philosophy, Art, and Critical Thought will devote one of its groups in the June session (June 11 to July 3) to the areas of Digital Design and Architecture and Urbanism. This format will allow second-year PhD students in these fields to complete their seminar studies in their degree program before moving on to their PhD thesis under the direction of one of the EGS faculty from their field of concentration. Six faculty from the relevant fields will be present in Saas Fee in June.

Alumni In Focus: Dan Hughes

"This was my orientation to this uncharacteristic grad school. It exuded an immediacy and intimacy that I had not expected. Despite the majority of my time in the program being spent in Switzerland, I returned to France to continue working with Paul Virilio three times over the years, and once found myself in the wonderful world of Hélène Cixous and the magical Théâtre du Soleil (one June session when she was unable to travel due to the illness of her mother and instead had her stipend pay for her students to come to work with her in Paris). This is how EGS works: Scholarship that is intimate, serendipitous, and always at work building something."

A New Future for the EGS: Malta

On March 20, 2016, the European Graduate School will launch its new MA and PhD programs in Malta (“Philosophy, Art, and Social Thought,” and “Literary, Musical, and Visual Thought”) and a pilot program in “Trauma, Refugees, Violence and Human Rights” that brings together the resources of the two divisions of the University.

A New Future for The EGS, Part Two

This is Part 2 of my sharing information about important new developments in the School’s structure and offerings for potential students and others who support our effort to transform the shape and meaning of graduate study. We seek to give a future to advanced, cross-disciplinary research that is critically incisive and intellectually adventurous, and we want to be sure that our programs are visible and in reach of potential participants from around the world. --Christopher Fynsk, Dean of the PACT Division
