University of Pécs
22–24 July 2022
We are pleased to announce a new initiative that aims to create a network of young and established researchers interested in the medieval and early modern period in Central Europe. Discussions may deal with, but are not limited to, the following suggested questions: To what extent can we determine a Central European region in the pre-modern era? What historiographical significance does this area bear for us scholars today? How can the methodology of connected history be used in the study of Central European history?
The Central European Interdisciplinary Summer School will take place at the University of Pécs with the goal of connecting early career researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral fellows) of medieval and early modern European history, and of stimulating international and interdisciplinary investigation among them. The event will present a wide range of academic lectures from distinguished scholars as well as provide participants with the opportunity to consider historiographical issues and methodological approaches in the form of workshops and seminars. By offering roundtable discussions, book launch events and museum visits; this summer school will enhance our understanding of the political, diplomatic, economic, religious, and social history of the Central European region. We hope to establish a research community from which future conferences and publications could arise.
Confirmed speakers: Jeroen Duindam (Leiden University), Márta Font (University of Pécs), Attila Bárány (University of Debrecen).
Motivation letters of 200-250 words along with a short biography up to 100 words should be sent to the summer school organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2022. We plan to hold the summer school in person in Pécs but this may change due to developments relating to Covid-19. Tuition fee: 150 EUR (please indicate in your application your request for accommodation).
