In no other point in human history have the constraints and potential of the current framework made social sciences and technologies deriving from them been so useful. In view of this assessment, the 3rd Cycle Course in Contemporary Studies is intended to foster scientific and technological research into contemporary societies (19th to 21st century). Therefore, developing interdisciplinary and mostly comparative study and intervention strategies is deemed most appropriate.
The Centre for 20th Century Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Coimbra (CEIS20) is a research unit linked to the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research of Coimbra University, governed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). Its core objectives are to promote interdisciplinary research into the contemporary era, dissemination of scientific knowledge and structuring technological solutions, enabling specific social needs to be satisfied.
