We intend to bring together an international group of 20 to 30 graduate students working on military, cultural, social, and environmental history of the First World War from 2nd to 7th July 2018. Over the course of the week, they will have opportunity to get to know each other, but also a wide range of internationally recognized academic experts. Guided tours on excursions to French and Belgian sites are an integral part of the program and will enrich the participants' experience.
Advanced masters students and doctoral students can apply to the summer school. Research themes directly related to the school's theme or showing how their research is linked to it will be prioritized, but all masters or doctoral students working on the Great War and its consequences can apply.
The working languages of the Summer School will be English and French. In order to participate fully in the programme and in particular the guided tours, at least a passive knowledge of French is required.
Applications must besubmitted by midnight on Thursday, 15th February 2018 on.
