The CEU Summer University has extended the deadline for applications to the course


"Cities and Science: Urban History and the History of Science in the Study of Early Modern and Modern Europe


to take place in Budapest, 18-27 July 2016


New deadline for applications: 15 March 2016


This interdisciplinary summer course will bring together senior and junior scholars of urban history, the history of science, and other related fields in order to exchange ideas in developing new research agendas with an aim to expand the “urban variable” in the history of science and to designate a space for the sciences in urban history from the early modern period to the early 20th century.


While the summer school will have a distinct interdisciplinary and trans-epochal character, and encourages practitioners of other fields, such as environmental studies, gender studies, literature, science and technology studies, sociology, cultural or social anthropology, to apply, potential participants should demonstrate historical awareness and a general interest in history.


The programme is primarily designed for MA and PhD students, but it is open to early-career researchers as well. 


The course is directed by Markian Prokopovych and Katalin Stráner, and the faculty includes Bert De Munck, Karl Hall, László Kontler, Kapil Raj, Ulrike Spring, and Roey Sweet.


For more information on the course, including eligibility criteria and application requirements, see http://summer.ceu.hu/citiesandscience-2016. Scholarships (partial and full) and tuition waivers are available on a competitive basis.
