PhD Summer School
CALL FOR PAPERS: PHD SUMMER SCHOOL ON METHODS IN YOUTH STUDIES, PRECEDING THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE NYRIS12, JUNE 10-12, 2013, TALLINN
The objective of the summer school is to support international discussion on the topic of methods in youth studies. New transnational and online environments where young people spend their time affect also research methodologies, ethics and data. With the rise of new contexts and advanced methods for gathering and analysing empirical material, contemporary research combines various approaches and methods alongside with new research problems.
The course includes introductory keynote lectures by the experts of youth research covering different methodological approaches. The main focus is on seminars where PhD students present and discuss their papers under the guidance of keynote speakers. The purpose is to enable doctoral students to receive detailed feedback from professors as well as fellow doctoral students. All papers discussing compatibility between new research problems and methods, the wide range of qualitative, quantitative, internet based, offline and combined methods, as well as ethical considerations in youth research, are welcome. Selected papers will be published in conference proceedings.
Abstracts (max 200 words) should be sent by e-mail to nyris12summerschool at tlu.ee by February 15 at the latest. Applicants will receive notice of acceptance by the end of February.
Summer school includes preparation work with reading materials. All selected participants are expected to submit a paper (5-7 pages) by April 30. All papers as well as the reading material prepared by keynote speakers will be available for the participants from May 10. Students will receive 6 ECTS for their active participation and paper presentation.
Summer school has no tuition fee, but the related expenses (travelling, accommodation etc) are on participants’ responsibility (for accommodation and travel information see also www.tlu.ee/NYRIS12). Unfortunately scholarships are not offered.
The summer school is organised with support of the Doctoral School of Behavioural, Social and Health Sciences.
