Call for Applications: Summer School – Cities and Science – Urban History and the History of Science in the Study of Early Modern and Modern Europe

June 29-July 4, 2015, Budapest, Hungary

The CEU Summer University invites applications from MA and PhD students to the course “Cities and Science: Urban History and the History of Science in the Study of Early Modern and Modern Europe” to take place in Budapest, 29 June-4 July 2015.

This interdisciplinary summer course will bring together senior and junior scholars of urban history, the history of science, and other related fields in order to exchange ideas in developing new research agendas with an aim to expand the “urban variable” in the history of science and to designate a space for the sciences in urban history from the early modern period to the early 20th century.

While the summer school will have a distinct interdisciplinary and trans-epochal character, and encourages practitioners of other fields, such as environmental studies, gender studies, literature, science and technology studies, sociology, cultural or social anthropology, to apply, potential participants should demonstrate historical awareness and a general interest in history.

The course is directed by Markian Prokopovych and Katalin Stráner, and the faculty includes Mitchell Ash, Karl Hall, László Kontler, Richard Rodger, Ulrike Spring, Roey Sweet, and Stéphane Van Damme.
