Enrolled students will receive a full academic programme and experience in two countries, accommodation in Gdansk and Stockholm, ferry transfer including cabin space from Poland to Sweden, refreshments during the course, afternoon and evening social activities, including most lunches and some other meals.

This course is for doctoral students in the arts and humanities or social sciences who wish to enhance their knowledge of collective identities and identity politics, as well as their competence in comparative methods. The ReNEW Summer University offers comparative tools for making sense of how the transformations of previous decades have affected populations and identity construction in the Nordic region and eastern central Europe. Empirically, our focus is directed towards the Nordic countries and eastern central Europe, including the Baltic Sea region. You are eligible to apply for the course if you are enrolled as a doctoral student at your home university and have a good command of spoken and written English.
