Join the Bergen Summer Research School
The Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) 2017 application deadline is coming up on March 1. Join us this summer for a cross-disciplinary research school exploring some of the most pressing challenges facing our world.
BSRS brings people together from different academic and cultural backgrounds, creating a unique opportunity for students from both the Global South and the North to connect and discuss their research with each other and with international scholars. The BSRS 2017 will take place on June 12-22 2017.
The Bergen Research Summer School 2017 offers six disciplinary courses for PhD-candidates and junior researchers. The courses will focuse on migration, the role of higher education, global health, water management, poverty, and the impact language has on global challenges.
The programme is tied together by a series of common sessions such as keynotes and roundtables, so there will be ample opportunities to engage in critical analyses to seek creative solutions and to participate in open debates.
The BSRS also offers several courses open to the public.
On June 13, Professor Jan Svennevig, Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan at the University of Oslo will host an open session on migration, language and the workplace interaction.
Sine Plambech, anthropologist at the Danish Institute for International Studies, provides a rare insight into the hopes and fears of high-risk migration with her film "Becky's journey" and a following discussion on the 14. of June.
