CBEES

Graphic element for CBEES - the Centre for Baltic and East European StudiesThe Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES) is tasked with stimulating, coordinating and developing Södertörn University’s research and doctoral education. It has a particular focus on studies of the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe and conducts its own research.

Since it was founded in 2005, CBEES has become a strong and thriving multidisciplinary research environment. The centre is a hub for cooperation throughout the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe, organising international conferences, seminars and workshops. The researchers’ expertise is in demand both within academia and in public debate. Research in the area is reflected in the international Baltic Worlds journal.

Many international visiting researchers have passed through the centre of the years, and more than 70 doctoral students have studied at BEEGS, the Baltic and East European Graduate School.

NAIRS Summer schools

The Network of Academic Institutions in Romani Studies cordially invites you to the
 

Second NAIRS Summer School for PhD Students

 
Time: 23-26 September, 2017

Place: Vila Lanna, V Sadech 1, Prague, Czech Republic
 

The purpose of the network is to foster European and national cooperation between academic institutions in all aspects of Romani studies. NAIRS coordinates practices and promotes multidisciplinary research on Roma, including studies of Roma culture, history, religion, politics and societal status, language, literature and folklore etc., and makes them available to a wider audience. Its overall objective is to develop Romani studies as a well-networked discipline and to cooperate with other academic fields.

As part of its main activities, NAIRS promotes and conducts joint research projects, PhD supervision, student, post doc and staff exchanges and scholarly visits, as well as teaching cooperation between its member institutions. Consequently, the call is open for applications for the Second Summer School for PhD Students, which will take place in Prague on 23-26 September, 2017.

The objective of NAIRS summer schools is to create an interdisciplinary space for the networking of young scholars in Romani studies. An interdisciplinary team of lecturers will present their research and approaches to Romani studies and will share their experience and knowledge with Summer School participants. In turn, the participants will present their on-going projects and participate in feedback and discussion sessions. The event will be thematically open for any topics related to Romani studies.

Participant contributions of highest quality will be given space for publication in the peer-reviewed Cargo Journal for Social and Cultural Anthropology (http://cargojournal.org/index.php/cargo/index), published by the Czech Association for Social Anthropology.

There is no participation fee for the event and NAIRS will provide bursaries to cover travel and accommodation expenses for most participants.
