Call Winter School 'Innovation and mountain territories' (April 2018, Ticino/Tessin, Switzerland) - deadline Dec. 3, 2017

Please note that this message is published for the interest of our members, but is not an IASC-activity

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. Proposals are welcome and should be submitted before December 3, 2017.

This winter 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.).

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.
