Call for Applications: University of Göttingen Winter School on Inequality
Students at the school will examine how "durable" inherited inequalities shape modern political, social and economic power, on one hand, and are at once key nodes of cohesion in social and political movements for justice. Young scholars from a diverse set of educational backgrounds and areal specializations will be provided with a set of rigorous comparative tools, drawing on the historical, sociological and anthropological perspectives and foci of the faculty, to understand pervasive and enduring forms of domination - and solidarity - in the modern world.
The Winter School will be held on January 8-14, 2018 at the University of Göttingen. Participants will engage in a weeklong program comprising lectures, seminars and workshops, reading and working groups, a field trip to a historically significant refugee housing center, documentary films, and social activities.
Fees & Funding
Roundtrip air and train fare, accommodation with breakfast, most lunches and two dinners will be provided free of cost to all accepted students. Travel grants are paid as fixed country-specific travel allowances. All other incidental costs must be borne individually.
Your application should consist of:
- A CV (1-2 pages).
- A letter of motivation (1-2 pages). Your letter of motivation should clearly describe your previous work on the topic, your current interests and goals, and your reasons for wishing to attend the Winter School.
Accepted students will be required to complete readings and one written presentation for the Winter School in advance.
