Join us for the IRS Spring Academy for doctoral and early postdoctoral researchers
Investigating Space(s): Current Theoretical and Methodological Approaches: Part 4 – Spaces of Crisis
26 - 29 May 2020
Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS) in Erkner, near Berlin
The IRS Spring Academy is a yearly format similar to a PhD summer school but, as the name suggests, taking place in spring. It is an international and interdisciplinary format that provides spots for 25 participants, typically doctoral students but also post-doctoral researchers in the early phase of their careers. The overarching aim of the IRS Spring Academy is to support qualification projects which seek to explore the spatial dimension of societally relevant topics. In particular we seek to stimulate debates at the intersections of disciplines and seek to promote academics who wish to conduct research with a spatial perspective. The IRS Spring Academy is dedicated to stimulate conceptual debates around a spatial perspective and to support new methodological knowledge that is required to conduct the related empirical investigations. Moreover, the IRS Spring Academy is a brokerage event that supports participants to build up personal networks and it provides feedback from acknowledged seniors for researchers at the early stage of their careers.
Each IRS Spring Academy will take four intensive days of collaboration, discussion and exchange. The program combines different elements and thereby offers plenty of opportunities to debate conceptual issues and methodological challenges as well as to engage in a critical, yet constructive and supportive dialogue.
Call for applications closes on 28 February 2020. Selected candidates will be informed at the mid of March 2020; enrolment for the IRS Spring Academy will take place until the end of March.
