International Summer School 'The Topography of Imperial Power: The Political and Cultural Space of Saint Petersburg'
Between 1712 and 1917, Saint Petersburg was the capital of the powerful Russian Empire. Here were all important political institutions of the Empire. They produced a social space, which is the main subject of the Summer School.
The Summer School is organized by the Department of History (HSE in St.Petersburg) and is generously supported by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
The Summer School is designed for students of social sciences and humanities. The curriculum will include Russian language courses for foreign students, presentations, workshops, partially held in Saint Peterburg’s public space, and master classes, as well as a special cultural program in the city. The summer school welcomes students from all German and other universities. Admission to the school is also open to students of the Saint Petersburg campus on a competitive basis.
The working languages are German and English.
Information from the DAAD:
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will provide scholarships for participants from German universities. Students from German universities are eligible to apply for DAAD scholarship that will cover a relevant part of the participation in the Summer School.
