July 25 – August 5, 2022, Vienna and Innsbruck
Application deadline: March 5, 2022
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 and Innsbruck from July 25 to August 5, 2022. The closing of borders during the pandemic has brought local inequalities and solidarities into sharp relief, while also heightening awareness of vulnerabilities and responsibilities that are shared transnationally. An interdisciplinary in-depth reflection on Canada, an important partner of the European Union, at a time when collaboration in person becomes possible again is therefore particularly welcome and urgent.The ESSCS is intended for Master (Bachelor’s degree completed) and doctoral students. The teaching staff are highly renowned specialists from Canada, Germany, and Austria representing the following fields: (English and French) literary and cultural studies, indigenous studies, media studies, language policy, history, cultural geography, political science and economics, intersectional and gender studies, mountain studies.
The course fees of EUR 530 include a two-week lecture program, course reading materials, readings and Q&As with an anglophone and a francophone author, the train transfer from Vienna to Innsbruck, three guided city tours (Vienna, Salzburg, and Innsbruck), a one-day excursion (including bus transfers and two meals) to the Alpine Obergurgl Research Center of the University of Innsbruck (cf. https://www.uibk.ac.at/uz-obergurgl/), an afternoon excursion to the Nordkette and a farewell dinner.
Credits: 5 ECTS (6 ECTS possible with an additional task)
