Summer School Equality and Citizenship 2017.

Summer School Equality and Citizenship

First call

The Center for Advanced Studies of South East Europe, the University of Rijeka and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Rijeka are organizing a summer school on equality and citizenship from July 3rd to July 7th, 2017, in Rijeka (Croatia).

The summer school does not reproduce, in a diluted form, the familiar teaching format of a university course. Instead, it is organized around “Author-Meets-Critics” symposia dedicated to some distinguished authors’ publications and work-in-progress. All the leading participants will give a paper on a topic on which they are working at the moment, and will reply to the papers given by scholars who participate in the symposia dedicated to them, and will be available for informal discussion. The leading participants are:

Richard Arneson (University of California, San Diego)

Tom Douglas (University of Oxford)

Leif Wenar (King’s College London)

Former participants are also invited to propose papers dedicated to the leading participants.

The summer school is primarily directed at post-doc and doctoral participants. Post-doc and doctoral participants can contribute to the discussion by commenting and asking questions. They will receive a certificate of participation that describes the activities in which they have participated at the summer school.

The detailed program of the summer school will be available on May 15th.

In order to apply, the candidates must send their application including their research interests and CV by May 22nd.  Former participants who wish to present papers dedicated to the leading participants should also include the title of their presentation in the application and send it by May 8th. All applications are to be sent to the following e-mail: .

Organizers will reply within a week and inform the candidates whether they have been accepted as participants for Summer School “Equality and Citizenship”. Accepted candidates must pay 150 € / 1155 HRK participation fee until May 30th, 2017 on the following account:
