Summer School "Embracing the City"

Sixth International Social Science Summer School

It will take place at the Center for Urban History in Lviv (Ukraine) on July 1-8, 2014.

The deadline for submission is April 15.

The Summer School welcomes proposals that embrace the city from many disciplines in the social sciences and adjacent fields, such as history, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, architecture, and urban studies. Our regional focus is the former Soviet Union, Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. While the primary focus will be on the 20th and 21st centuries, 19th century proposals are welcome.

The Summer School is interdisciplinary and follows a workshop format. Each participant will present a pre-circulated paper and receive comments from a group of international faculty, as well as from other participants.

The Summer School is open to PhD students (or students enrolled in a kandidat nauk program) and young researchers (up to six years removed from their PhD or kandidat nauk degree). Proposals strong on theory and empirical research are particularly welcomed. The working language of the Summer School is English.

The application must be sent by e-mail to ukrainesummerschool@gmail.com, by 15 April 2014.
