Fith GERN Doctoral Summer School on Crime, Deviance and Criminal Justice.
To be held in Dortmund, Germany – 19-21 September 2016
Who is it for?
Research students undertaking doctoral research on deviance, crime, social control and criminal justice issues. This is an opportunity to present your research, have it discussed by leading European researchers and, if selected, published in an edited book. The summer school is probably most suited to research students in their second and third years. The summer school’s orientation is interdisciplinary: doctoral research projects from history, sociology, criminology, political science or other social science disciplines are welcome. The working language of the Summer School is English.
What does it include?
- Presentations and discussion of research by doctoral students
- Lectures and discussion sessions with leading European researchers
- An opportunity to learn about criminology around Europe and meet other doctoral students
- An opportunity to submit your revised paper for publication
What does it involve?
Doctoral students will need to send a detailed abstract of their paper (two pages setting out their theoretical framework, concepts and research findings/research plans), together with a letter of engagement from their supervisor, agreeing to help them, by 15 May 2016. We can admit up to about 24 students – initial acceptance will be made known by 1 June 2016.
Those students who have been initially accepted will need to send their paper to be discussed at the summer school, of some 6,000 words (in English) by 31 July 2016 and final acceptance will be on receipt of the paper.
What does it cost?
Students (or their institutions) will need to bear the cost of their own travel to Dortmund and accommodation and subsistence in Dortmund. Detailed Information will be provided later.
The cost of the conference will be 60 euros for students whose institution is member of GERN or the GIWK (and 140 euros for students whose institution is not a member of GERN or the GIWK), which will include tea and coffee, lunches and an informal dinner for all the participants on one night.
* The same week the 16th Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology starts on Wednesday, the 21 September in Münster, about 60 km or half an hour train from Dortmund, which gives the opportunity to connect easily the two European events in criminology.
