We are presently organizing a European Summer School in Canadian Studies
(ESSCS), which will take place in Vienna and Innsbruck from June 29 until July
10, 2020. The European Summer School in Canadian Studies is the first of its
kind and addresses the multidisciplinary field of Canadian Studies. It aims at
bringing high-potential students from various countries in Europe and beyond
together to strengthen the dialogue between the many disciplines that make up
Canadian Studies: literary and cultural studies, indigenous studies, media
studies, linguistics, history, cultural geography, political sciences,
sociology, gender studies, and economics. It offers high-potential MA/MEd and
PhD students in the Humanities and Social Sciences critical perspectives on
national myths and stereotypes.
Goals of the project
The Center for North American Studies offers more than forty subjects to the students of English, French, and Spanish language and literature - dealing with cultural developments throughout the continent, from Mexico to Canada.
