Focusing on the works by Leone (1909-1944) and Natalia Ginzburg (1916-1991) the Summer School is dedicated to a reflection on the authors’ contribution to the 20th century Italian and European history. Besides a critical analysis of their creative and intellectual activity and their civic engagement, the participants will have the opportunity to debate the role both Leone and Natalia had in the publishing house Einaudi, and to experiment new methods of teaching literature. The program includes 3 plenary lessons and 5 seminars. Special guest: Carlo Ginzburg.Language of the activities: Italian.
The conference (under the scientific auspices of the Algerian Chemical Society, Société Algérienne de Chimie, SAC, in association with FASC, the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry) and IUPAC, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, wishes to emphasize the roles of chemistry education for development and for sustainable development in the Maghreb region and in Africa, by offering an ideal opportunity for sharing experiences among chemistry educators across the African continent and with specialists from other continents.

5th international congress “Sport, doping and society”
The 5th international congress “Sport, doping and society” is organized by the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport (AEPSAD) and the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). Under the theme “Think Clean”, there will be presented the results of scientific researches and new methodologies in the field of doping in sport from the specific perspective of Human and Social Sciences. We believe that this initiative will contribute to identify the factors that influence the use of doping substances and methods. From this knowledge we hope to foster future prevention and doping control and to promote ethical behavior in sport.
This workshop is focused on how new digital pedagogical aspects may be driven by communities, enablers and stakeholders. This event would like to engage in discussions and collaborations with the goal of putting the “why” and “how” of digitally enhanced learning, OER and MOOCs as a public good on the agenda. It is endorsed by ADHO, EADH and Humanistica.
This conference is the closing event of the Erasmus+ project #dariahTeach (23-24 March 2017, Lausanne). It is an event joined to the DARIAH workshop Open Education (22-23 March 2017, Lausanne). Both are endorsed by ADHO, EADH, and Humanistica. #dariahTeach is developing open-source, high quality, multilingual teaching materials for the digital arts and humanities.
Disciplines and fields of study are far from being stable entities; tracing the history of any field of study reveals their connection to social and cultural contexts, attempts at legitimation, shifts in methodological approaches, complex relations with other fields of study, as well as the influence of institutional factors.
FORCCAST Summer School 2015
In 2014, we started the FORCCAST summer school with a provocative question: “What is a good controversy?”. We began by lining up case studies selected by participants which were then discussed by participants in small groups. We would like to continue this exercise by inviting scholars working on controversies to present their case study and situate the notion of “controversies” in relation to more established and used social sciences concepts. It is not unfair to detect a somewhat casual use of “controversies” as an analytical resource. Against this trend, we encourage scholars to present research that falls within this area, and also to refine the coarse nature of the very term “controversy”. Over the years, we will build a repository of case studies that should help all of us to analyze the diversity behind the use of the term “controversies”, to identify some patterns, and hopefully to build a common typology.
Quality et conduite de la valeur pour l'enseignement du supérieur (pédagogie, organisation etc.)
This book will aim to provide identified and relevant proposals of good practices to promote the outcomes and favor the issues of Higher Education providers; proposals that integrate all stakeholders dialogic expectations (the clients: trainers, trainees, companies and society) in a resolutely innovative optical within the sense of sustainability and the EFQM Excellence model. Within theoretical results into perspective by the concrete practice work, clues will be presented to help quality through design process, pedagogy, organization and management for WIL in Higher Education. Value management principles and standards are considered as a global framework to develop such trainings to achieve success in a European Environment (European Standards and Guidelines) but not only: facing uncertainties and constraints. Obviously strategy, policy and leadership have to be considered.
Social, Ethical and Political Challenges
As expressions of cultural embodiment, sexualities, genders and sports can be analyzed as a mirror of societies’ transformations and developments. The analysis of sports, gender and sexuality can be a key to analyze changes and persistence's in social interactions and collective representations. This workshop seeks to create a discursive space for contributors to explore the social, ethical and political criticalities arising in the interaction between sports, gender and sexualities in contemporary societies. We invite papers aimed at both understanding the relationships between sports, genders and sexualities, and using them as a tool to analyse broader social, ethical and political transformations. As such, such, we hope to provide both critical evaluation of current theories and paradigms by which sport, gender and sexuality are understood and encourage the opening of new horizons for critical investigations.

The IAMCR 2015 Conference will be held in Montreal, Canada, July, 12-16, 2015. The Media Education Research Section is inviting submissions of individual research papers, complete panels and workshop proposals.
The aim of this conference is to provide researchers studying sport refereeing with a discussion space in order to increase and improve the scientific network in this area. This network is then expected to answer new queries and to meet the practical challenges of sport refereeing. The scope of this conference includes a broad range of work which contributes to a greater understanding of refereeing performance and/or provides some directions for the development of this area. This conference will take place the 22-24 September 2014 in Clermont-Ferrand (France).

Neuvième symposium international de CORPUS groupe international d'études culturelles sur le corps
Le 9e symposium international de CORPUS groupe international d'études culturelles sur le corps aura lieu à Taipei du 24 au 26 mai prochain. Organisé avec l'académie Sinica et l'université nationale des arts de Taiwan, il rassemblera des intervenants venus d'une dizaine de pays sur le thème « Éducation du corps et apprentissage culturel ».
In a context of major change in both higher education and the academic world, transformations can be considered as multi-dimensional and include issues such as : high enrolment rates, increased social and cultural heterogeneity, development of and change in mobility (institutional, territorial, international), diversification of the offer of academic institutions (public and private, reconfiguration of the institutional landscape), changes in policy guidelines, such as the Bologna Process. The conference will focus on individual and group behaviours, strategies and trajectories which are strongly affected by and find themselves remodelled in the current context. We propose the term mobility as a central notion for apprehending the phenomena.
Stakeholders engagement and success of education and training systems reforms, what correlation?
During the 10th session of CIMQUSEF that crown a decade of commitment AMAQUEN to participate in efforts to improve quality in education and training systems, we have chosen in line with themes under the field of quality management, to address this issue to date. Because it is linked to the roles to be played by different actors and stakeholders in the success of the reforms undertake different countries or groups of countries to improve their education and training systems. The Cimqusef'2013 invite speakers and participants to try to answer the questions underlying the issue: ''How the management of change he promotes engagement of stakeholders in the success of the SET reforms?''.
