International Summer School on ScienceHumanities [British Society for Literature and Science]
In 2018 Cardiff University’s ScienceHumanities research group will host a
week-long International Summer School dedicated to the examination of the
relations between the humanities and the sciences.
The Summer School programme features workshops from leading scholars in
literature and science, the histories of science and medicine, and the
philosophy of science from across the UK and Europe. It is designed to give you
access to significant researchers in the field, and professional development
opportunities on publishing, public engagement, and archival research.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to share ideas, concepts and methods
with other doctoral students and begin to build a network of global contacts.
The Summer School also incorporates a cultural programme focussed on the rich
heritage of Cardiff as both a Welsh and British city.
The Summer School is open only to doctoral students located in universities and
research centres outside the UK. There are only 12 places available.
It is free to attend, but participants must be able to meet the cost of their
own transport, accommodation and part of their subsistence during their stay in
Cardiff. Advice will be given on accommodation and transport and some meals will
be included during the Summer School.
Two bursaries of £400 are available for students from nations with limited
