NEW FACES, “Facing Europe in Crisis: Shakespeare’s World and Present Challenges”, is a European
Strategic Partnership that aims to promote historical and literary understanding
of the complexities of crises
(cultural, linguistic, political, social, religious, and economic), to help face a complex contemporary European context.
NEW FACES brings together students and scholars from nine universities in Europe from 2016 to 2019.
20 scholars will offer a two-week intensive teaching programme addressed to 60 students coming from those 9 universities every year during this period in three different places: Szeged (Hungary), Montpellier (France) and Porto (Portugal).
The programme combines high quality academic features with the creation of links between the students and key actors of civil society in the handling of crises.
NEW FACES encourages tomorrow’s European citizens to face crises by finding in the study of Shakespeare’s World the necessary tools of present and future analysis and political decision-making.
