NCoE NordWel, Nordic Centre of Excellence: The Nordic Welfare State - Historical Foundations and Future Challenges, in cooperation with the Danish Research School for History and Nordic Research School for Contemporary History are organizing a summer school in Helsinki, 21-26 August 2008. The Summer School will – inspired by new trends within welfare research - challenge our often very narrow national and contemporary understanding of the welfare state. Our aim is to bring together PhD students and post-doc researchers and stimulate a discussion that will challenge and maybe bring us beyond well established concepts and understandings.
The course is composed of a series of guest lectures and workshops. It is designed for Nordic and international PhD students and post-doc researchers from various academic fields. We invite proposals for papers that deal with welfare and welfare state in a broad historical perspective. Papers can be both theoretical and empirical in their approach. They can deal with national themes or have a comparative perspective. Dead-line for abstract submission is 30 April, 2008.
