European Summer School in Canadian Studies

(ESSCS 2020)

June 29 – July 10, 2020
Vienna – Innsbruck (Austria)

Synopsis

The current political constellation in North America has brought Canada diplomatically closer to the European Union and asks for a better reciprocal understanding of the two partners with regard to cultural, political, and economic issues. The European Summer School in Canadian Studies is the first of its kind to meet these new demands and to support aspiring students and young researchers in building international networks. It addresses the multidisciplinary field of Canadian Studies, aiming to bring students from various countries in Europe and beyond together to strengthen the dialogue between the many disciplines that make up Canadian Studies: literary and cultural studies, indigenous studies, media studies, linguistics, history, cultural geography, political sciences, sociology, gender studies, and economics. It offers high-potential MA/MEd and PhD students in the Humanities and Social Sciences critical perspectives on national myths and stereotypes.
