CFApplications: ScienceHumanities International Summer School

Call for papers

The ScienceHumanities research group at Cardiff University is pleased to announce that applications for the 2018 ScienceHumanities international summer school are now open.

Dedicated to the examination of the relations between the humanities and the sciences, the Summer School programme features workshops from leading scholars in the histories of science and medicine, literature and science, and the philosophy of science from across the UK and Europe. It is designed to give you access to significant researchers in the field, and professional development opportunities on publishing, public engagement, and archival research. In addition, you will have the opportunity to share ideas, concepts and methods with other doctoral students and begin to build a network of global contacts.

The Summer School also incorporates a cultural programme focused on the rich heritage of Cardiff as both a Welsh and British city.

The Summer School is open only to doctoral students located in universities and research centres outside the UK. There are only 12 places available.

It is free to attend, but participants must be able to meet the cost of their own transport, accommodation and part of their subsistence during their stay in Cardiff. Advice will be given on accommodation and transport and some meals will be included during the Summer School.

Two bursaries of £400 are available for students from nations with limited resources.
