Participate in the MISSCHO – Migration Studies Ph.D. Summer School!
The University of Granada invites Arqus Ph.D. students to the International Doctoral Summer School MISSCHO on Migration Studies that will take place from 18th to 21st July.
The aim of this Summer School is to provide an intensive programme that enhances the research exchanges among the group of universities participating while thinking about the changes in mobility and communities we are experiencing.
The Migration Studies Ph.D. Summer School offers a multi-disciplinary and international approach on migration studies. The main topics covered by MISSCHO are:
The programme of the School involves more than 60 teaching researchers, from different fields (Political Science, Sociology, Law, Geography, History, Economics, Anthropology, among others) working on migration issues as the main area of expertise.
The program will include a range of academic activities such as lectures (opening and closing lectures), academic and social roundtables, a documentary screening as well as Ph.D. workshops. Considering the different topics that the Ph.D. students are developing in their studies, the common concern on methodologies, categories and approaches of analysis will be the main instrumental focus. Therefore, it will be required that students work in teams and prepare presentations to debate on.
The applicants must fill in the MISSCHO 2022 Application Form and provide a short CV and a motivation letter. Documents must be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: SUBMISSION MIGRATION STUDIES Ph.D. SUMMER SCHOOL 2022). The application deadline is 11th July.
Among 20-25 outstanding Ph.D. students will be admitted. The School aims especially at Ph.D. students in the early stage of their thesis, who are still designing or have recently submitted their research proposal. In order to obtain a certification, students should attend and participate in (at least) 80% of the activities developed.
The tuition fee for the program is 100€ (the fee covers a welcome kit with all course material). 5 students from the Arqus universities will benefit from a tuition waiver. These students will be granted on a basis of academic merit and considering geographical and gender balance. Arqus students that fit the requirements and would like to ask for the tuition waiver should fill out the option in the application form and indicate a justification of their motivation through an addition motivation letter entitled: Why I am requesting the tuition waiver.
