18th International Lab Meeting Summer Session
17th International Summer School on Social Representations
European Ph.D. on Social Representations and Communication
"Social Representations of Urban Places and Environment:
Images, Memory and Identity"
at the European PhD on Social
Representations & Communication Research Center and
Multimedia LAB, P.za d'Ara Coeli 1, Rome-Italy
with worldwide multi-points connection via interactive
08th - 20th July, 2011
The objective of this Erasmus Intensive Programme
is to continue the annual 12-day long International Summer School
of the European PhD on Social Representations and Communication
which, since 1995, has been offering advanced training to young
researchers in key areas of social psychology with wide applications
in the public and private sectors on issues including the information
society, science popularisation, new socialization and communication
strategies, and applied research crucial to health, the environment,
political life, social minorities, gender, etc. It has has helped
to reinforce the intellectual leadership of European Social Psychology
and is now well established as a permanent European forum for
disseminating state of the art research in this area.
Systematic co-operation among European researchers
remains one of the fundamental prerequisites for meeting the goals
of the ERA and EHEA and the European PhD's International Summer
School has played and will continue to play an active role in
promoting "internationalization" of European Higher Education,
taking it beyond the walls of academia, and contributing to the
diversity of experience for the trainees involved. Target groups
include research trainees enrolled in the European PhD on S.R.
& C., postgraduates and research trainees in other national PhD
programmes, as well as special target groups with access difficulties,
such as women, the disabled and researchers from less favoured
EU regions who can profit from the ODL training system and the
network's long-term after-event dissemination of multimedia products.
40 applicants (20 who will physically attend the event funded
by this IP contract and 20 who will attend on-line via the European
PhD web-auditorium for a wider dissemination of the scientific
event) will be selected respectively from: partner Universities
of this EU IP consortium (according to the new IP series LLP eligibility
criteria) and from the wider scenario of partner universities
of the EU approved SoReCom Thematic Network who are not members
of the European PhD on S.R. & C.
Summer school activities include face-to-face
workshops, lectures, and presentations as well as mediated virtual
events such as Internet forum discussions, web videoconferencing,
and streaming videos. Important themes are discussed at individual,
group and plenary levels on the same day, guaranteeing learning
of unusual intensity and quality. Young researchers are assisted
in making appointments to meet personally and discuss particular
issues with guest speakers.
The 2011 Edition of the International
Summer Schools will be held on the 08th
- 20th of July at the European Ph.D on Social Representations
and Communication Research Centre and Multimedia lab. It will
be focussed on “Social Representations of Urban Places and Environment:
Images, Memory and Identity”, a topic
which is at the same time the genesis and the core of the theoretical
and empirical research field launched in 1961 by Serge Moscovici.
Besides the European
PhD scientific co-ordinator, Annamaria de Rosa (Sapienza University,
Italy), the professors who have already confirmed their participation
include: Valérie Haas (Université de Lyon 2, France), Guan Jian (University of Nankai, Cina), Denise Jodelet (E.H.E.S.S., France), Radim Marada (Masayk University of Brno, Czech Republic), and Michel Morin (Université de Provence, France).
As in the
previous events, the 17th edition of the International Summer
School will integrate face-to-face and on-line communication.
Therefore, in addition to the restricted number of the participants
who will attend the event at the European PhD. on S.R. & C.
Research Centre and Multi-media Lab in Rome, the participation
of other selected applicants will be possible from any worldwide
location via an interactive web-conference system (a specific
basic and advanced training will be offered at the beginning
of the event).
The International Summer School will also include:
