This interdisciplinary U4 Summer School in Gender Studies for PhD and Advanced MA students is the first to be organised by the working group on Gender within the U4 network.
Staff members in education and research in gender studies from the four institutions, together with other invited scholars, will interact with students from the U4 universities. The summer school will be organised as an intensive 6-day programme taking place at 15-20 August 2016 at University of Göttingen, Germany.
The summer school aims to attract a limited number of students (5 from each partner institution) in order to maximise in-depth discussion, scholarly exchange and networking within the context of contemporary gender studies in Europe.
Each day is structured around a particular theme, including a key-note lecture, group discussion, PhD project presentations and master classes. We encourage applications from students working in the field of gender studies and more broadly cultural and critical theory. The summer school will offer the opportunity to exchange and stimulate collaboration among peers and teachers in an international setting, and across traditional disciplinary divides.
Deadline for submission abstracts & CV is January 31st, 2016.
The four research centres are connected for some time. In 2014, they met to celebrate the launch of the new Centre for Gender Studies in Göttingen. Today, they are looking forward to collaborate further in organising the summer school in Göttingen.
