IIIrd International Winter School LabEx ITEM

IIIe Université internationale d'hiver LabEx ITEM

*  *  *

Published on Monday, October 23, 2017 by Elsa Zotian

Summary

This summer school will offer the opportunity to develop training in research, make own ongoing or planned works known, exchange them with a comparative perspective and facilitate the cooperation within international research projects. The Winter School will be organised in the form of presentations, alternating with working groups, lectures and a field trip. Communicators will present their projects or findings on mountain territories, from all geographic areas. The topic is deliberately broad: it will deal with contemporary dynamics, from the perspective of humanities and social sciences, or with an interdisciplinary approach (environmental science, health science, etc.).

Announcement

In April 2018, the LabEx ITEM will organise its 3rd International Winter School in the canton of Ticino (Switzerland) in cooperation with LabiSAlp (History of the Alps Study Centre) of the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI). This meeting seeks to promote young researchers working on mountain territories in an international convivial ambiance.

Argument

This summer school will offer the opportunity to develop training in research, make own ongoing or planned works known, exchange them with a comparative perspective and facilitate the cooperation within international research projects. The Winter School will be organised in the form of presentations, alternating with working groups, lectures and a field trip.

This edition is addressed to young researchers: doctoral students, post-doctoral and junior researchers, but also researchers in integration, or MA students planning on doing a PhD.

To that end, ISCAR (International Scientific Committee on Research in the Alps) endorses this action.

Communicators will present their projects or findings on mountain territories, from all geographic areas. The topic is deliberately broad: it will deal with contemporary dynamics, from the perspective of humanities and social sciences, or with an interdisciplinary approach (environmental science, health science, etc.). The selection criteria will relate to the innovative character, the quality and the relevance to societal challenges.

The International Winter School – programme

The event will include plenary or parallel paper sessions, led by researchers from the LabEx and its scientific committee. Several workshops will be offered, of which: “better communicate your Phd-thesis”, or “researchers/actors relationships in the context of a partner-oriented research”. Specific times will be dedicated to interactions, in the form of dinner debates and thematic discussions. The last day will be devoted to a field trip.

The Winter School will take place in the village of Monte Carasso, in the vicinity of Bellinzona, in the Swiss canton of Ticino. Round trip collective transport will be provided from Grenoble to Monte Carasso (with potential stops on the way). The accommodation will be covered, as well as this collective transport. Given the interest of exchange and the remoteness of the accommodation, it is necessary to be present for the whole length of the Winter School.

Conditions for participation

  • The paper proposal should consist of 2.500-4.000 characters. A CV should also be provided. Please send the submission forms via the “scienceconf” platform: https://unhiv2018-item.sciencesconf.org/
  • The principal language will be English.
  • The participation will be validated after a double expertise of the paper proposals. 

Timeline

  • All submissions must be submitted prior to : December 3rd,  2017.

  • Results: January 15th, 2018.

All accepted submissions will be published on “Au Top!” blog (http://unhiv.hypotheses.org/) and archived on HAL-LabEx ITEM:
