The Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI), an associated member of EUROCLIO, organizes the fourth Georg Arnhold International Summer School. This event will take place from 24 to 28 July, 2017, in Braunschweig, Germany. For this summer school, the organizers have now announced a call for papers.
The summer school will revolve around the theme of “Education in Emergencies”, and will focus on all educational levels, as well as on both formal and non-formal educational practices.
Millions of young people have been deprived from their right to education, due to natural and man-made emergencies. In reaction to a global growing awareness of how important it is to ensure that this fundamental human right is respected, education has increasingly become a part of the humanitarian response to emergency situations, and the object of an emergent field of research.
The Georg Eckert Institute invites original contributions that draw upon diverse contexts, theories, and methods to shed light on questions pertaining to, but not restricted to, the following aspects: theories and methods of education in emergencies; curricula and educational media; and teachers and teacher training for education in emergencies.
The organizers primarily welcome applications from doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars from the humanities and social sciences, particularly education, history, political sciences, sociology, law, anthropology, and psychology, but also practitioners working for international organizations and NGOs in the relevant fields are welcome to apply. Applications from students enrolled in a Master’s program and recent graduates with a Master’s degree will be considered in exceptional cases.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 1 April, 2017. For all the information on the requirements and how to apply, as well as more information on the Georg Arnhold International Summer School, please refer to the website.
