Applications for the CeSPeC’s Summer School 2017 are open. Our Research Centre offers both undergraduates and postgraduates the chance to apply for scholarships. Scholarships are dispensed in the form of a partial reimbursement of travel and accommodation expenses incurred to participate in the Summer School. Recipients of the scholarships will have to attend to the whole four days event in order to be eligible for the scholarship. Taking part in the panel organised on the 16th of September is not mandatory. The trip from Cuneo to Savigliano and the lunch in Savigliano on the 15th of September are organised and offered by CeSPeC. The Summer School is open to all those interested, and especially to undergraduates, postgraduates (such as PhD students and Post-Docs), and scholars specialised in the following disciplines: philosophy, sociology, anthropology, law, religious studies, modern and contemporary history, science and technology, literature.

Selected applicants will have to register one hour before the first panel of the Summer School at the exMater Amabilis University branch (Via Ferraris di Celle, 2 – Cuneo). 

During the Summer School one panel will be dedicated to the presentation and discussion of proposals by the scholarship recipients (up to 20 minutes each), dealing with the main theme. The proposals will be selected by the CeSPeC research group and will be published after the event. 

Applicants who are interested in delivering a presentation must send, along with their application form, the abstract-form attached to this announcement duly completed within the 31st of July 2017. A maximum of 6 abstracts will be selected.
