The ScienceHumanities Summer School: Postgraduate, International, and Free

The ScienceHumanities Summer School features a week of workshops with leading scholars who have trained in a diverse array of disciplines—literature, history, philosophy, sociology, environmental science—and are doing research at the cross-section of the humanities and sciences. Students have the opportunity to engage with experienced researchers and a select cohort of peers from around the world, attending workshops around the theme of energies and career issues. Areas covered in the workshop include: interdisciplinary working, nuclear energies, oil and petro-culures, and hydro-power and renewals.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to share ideas, concepts and methods with other doctoral students and begin to build a network of global contacts. The Summer School also incorporates career-shaping activities and a cultural programme focussed on the rich heritage of Cardiff and the South Wales valleys.

The Summer School is open only to doctoral students and postdoctorial researchers (within 12 months of the award of their PhD) located in universities and research centres worldwide. There are only 12 places available.

It is free to attend, but participants must be able to meet the cost of their own travel, accommodation and part of their subsistence during their stay. Advice will be given on accommodation and transport and meals will be included during the Summer School.
