"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."
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.
