Published on Wednesday, April 12, 2017


The sixth GERN (Groupe européen de recherche sur les normativités) summer school for doctoral students will take place in Padua (Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy) from Wednesday 6 September to Friday 8 September 2017. It will be organised by the Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology (FISPPA) - University of Padua, and by the First-level Short Specialisation degree in Critical Criminology and Social Security.    


To be held in Padua, Italy – 6-8 September 2017

Who is it for?

Research students undertaking doctoral research on deviance, crime and social control. 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 30 April 2017.

We can admit up to about 24 students – initial acceptance will be made known by 15 May 2017.

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 15 July 2017 and final acceptance will be on receipt of the paper.

Abstracts, letters and papers should be sent electronically to [francesca.vianello@unipd.it], to [claudia.mantovan@unipd.it] and to [daniel.ventre@cesdip.fr].

What does it cost?

Students (or their institutions) will need to bear the cost of their own travel to Padua and accommodation and subsistence in Padua. Detailed Information will be provided later.

The cost of the conference will be 60 euros for students whose institution is member of GERN (and 140 euros for students whose institution is not a member of GERN), which will include tea and coffee, lunches and an informal dinner for all the participants on one night.
