PhD students in sports sciences and sport history
At the end of the summer school, the participants should have:
- Discovered new epistemological approaches and new methodologies in sport sciences;
- Benefited from exchanges with other young scholars;
- Exchanged with influential and recognized professors of the field;
- Strengthened their writing skills;
- Improved their soft skills.
Focused on PhD students’ work, the pedagogical approach of the school is based both on lectures, discussing very specific methodological aspects and new issues in Sport history, and on workshops where articles or chapters submitted prior to the school will be discussed in small groups. Leading experts in the field will be lecturing and chairing the workshops, and informal discussion sessions will allow participants to have further discussions with them regarding their PhD topic.
The programme also includes sessions on publications opportunities and processes as well as a visit to the Olympic museum and at the Olympic archives.
Through these activities, the school aims to offer a rewarding scientific and human experience.
