Migration and Inequality (July 8-12, 2013)
Migration is a key challenge in contemporary societies. The magnitude of people who live and work abroad has never been as large as today, with migrants making crucial contributions to economic, social, cultural and political transformation in modern societies. This situation is a momentous challenge for the social sciences: The issues to be addressed include the causes, progress and consequences of migration; the relevance of (familial) net- works as well as cultural, symbolic and economic capital for migrational processes; migrants’ living conditions; and the manifold and partially conflictual relationships between natives and immigrants. Moreover, spatial structures and processes of delimitation are paramount to international migration and are to be explored in terms of divergent political frameworks. Attending to the subjects of migration and inequality, the Marie Jahoda Summer School of Sociology is pleased to invite dedicated PhD students to send in their applications. The work will focus on five core themes supervised by a high-ranking international faculty.
Applicants are asked to submit their CV (max. 2 pages) and a description of their PhD project (max. 2 pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Application deadline: April 25, 2013 Students will receive 6 ECTS credits.
The Summer School fee is EUR 140.-, including social dinner. Students are expected to pay for their own travel and accommodation.
