Summer school: Culture and politics in Europe today

ACCESS EUROPE, with support of the European Commission, invites PhD students and advanced MA students to apply for one of the 20 available spots in this one-week full-time summer school on culture and politics in Europe. Deadline for applications is 1 May.

This one-week, full-time, intensive Summer School will consist of a series of interactive seminars with leading scholars in anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, religious studies, and history. The 20 participants will explore the theme of ‘culture and politics in Europe today’ from different angles, with plenty of opportunities for students to link it to their own research.

The program is organized in four sessions about the following themes: - Heritage and memory: the commemoration of wars and conflict - Secular Europe: How do states govern European Islam? - Regional and urban identities: the enigma of community in a globalized Europe - Populism and participation: the return of nationalism, authoritarianism, and popular democracy.
