Marie Jahoda Summer School 2016


The Challenge of Governing Urban Diversity

3rd – 9th of July 2016

Target Group

The Summer School addresses primarily early stage PhD students who are exploring themes and methods related to the Summer School focus. In exceptional cases, advanced Master students who have prepared or are planning a PhD project on the topic might be admitted as well. In accordance with the Summer School’s interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, students from across the social sciences (from anthropology to political science, sociology, economics) and space-sensitive disciplines (e.g. geography, planning, and architecture, …) will be eligible to apply. Indeed, a diversity of participants is desired to enrich the quality of the individual modules and the overall learning potential.


PhD students, early stage researchers and exceptionally late Master students are welcome to apply for the summer school.

To apply please fill out the application form and upload the following documents online:

  • a letter of motivation (max. 1 page)
  • a CV (max. 2 pages)
  • an abstract of your own PhD project (max. 2 pages)

The deadline for applications is April 17th, 2016.

Applicants will be informed if they have been selected for the DIVERCITIES Summer School by May 15th, 2016 at the latest.

Participants will be chosen by a committee and efforts will be made to ensure a gender balance. A small number of spaces will be allocated to students/researchers based in Vienna.
