Organized in collaboration with the Université Gustave Eiffel in Paris and based on the legacy of the « Copenhagen Summer School » (based on an idea from Gertrud Pfister and Gerald Gems, held since 2003), this summer school aims to promote sport history but also more broadly social and human sciences used to analyse the sport phenomena.
This course aims to provide a unique environment for PhD students who seek to develop skills around sport history, and to improve their network in the field. Lectures given by leading experts will cover specific methodological aspects and new issues in the field of sport history. Participants will also have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research in specific sessions.
The summer school in 2023 will be held in Lausanne on the campus of the University of Lausanne, in a fantastic environnement both for its amazing views on the Alps and its role in the governance of international sports, along the presence of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and more than 50 international sports federations and organisations.
Deadline to submit a proposal: 8 May 2023
