The Canadian Studies Centres of the Universities of Innsbruck and Vienna are organising the first European Summer School in Canadian Studies, which will take place in Vienna (first week) and in Innsbruck (second week) from 29 June to 10 July 2020. In the current political constellation in North America, an interdisciplinary-oriented in-depth reflection on Canada, one of the European Union‘s key partners, seems indispensable.
