SLORI is pleased to announce a thesis competition for master’s and doctoral degrees theses. Four-year bachelor’s degrees theses can be submitted too, while Bologna first-cycle degrees will not be accepted.

Candidates are invited to submit their theses which make a significant or original contribution to the understanding of the Slovene community in Italy, its social structure, internal functions, settlement area and social space, as well as its development processes in the social, cultural, political, economic, legal and educational fields, inter-ethnic relations, identity, language practices and communication. The thesis may also focus on other minority-related studies, in which case it should entail a comparison with the Slovene community in Italy or raise awareness of the situation of the Slovene community in Italy.

SLORI will award the winning theses (four-year bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral) with the following monetary prizes:

– four-year programme degree or master’s thesis: 400€ (up to 2, totalling 800€);
– doctoral thesis: 800 € (up to 2, totalling 1.600€).

The full Call for Proposals is published in Slovene.

The deadline for application submission is Monday, 16 January 2023.
