The summer school, focusing on questions of globalization and transnationalization, has over the last years become the trademark of the Graduate School and is jointly hosted by several units. It is divided in plenary events (often with the participation of reputable guest speakers) and numerous panels focusing on different topics, which are organized by the PhD candidates and offer the opportunity to invite junior researchers from other institutions.

CfP: 1989 - A Caesura in Global History and its Consequences

Over the past decade, the Summer School of Leipzig’s Graduate School Global and Area Studies has established itself as an important meeting place for the interdisciplinary discussion of transnationalization and transculturalism as well as new trends in the research of globalization in general. The 2019 edition, which again is organized in close cooperation with the Centre for Area Studies, the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) and the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199: “Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition” addresses the consequences of 1989 as a caesura and cipher in a global perspective.
With its thematic focus, the summer school takes up the theme of the conference “Revolutions and Transformations in a Global Perspective, 1989—2019” and provides an arena for early researchers more specifically to present their ongoing research related to 1989 to 2019: ruptures and ciphers in a global perspective.

Early researchers interested in the topic are cordially invited to submit either a proposal for a panel or an individual paper by application to the Summer School which is to be held June 12 to 15, 2019 in Leipzig.
