Date / time: 22 July - 24 July, All day

Central European Interdisciplinary Summer School, c. 1200–1700


Call for Applications, deadline – 30 June 2022

Online, hosted by the University of Pécs, 22–24 July 2022

We are pleased to announce a new initiative that aims to create a network of young and established researchers interested in the medieval and early modern period in Central Europe. Discussions may deal with, but are not limited to, the following suggested questions:

  • To what extent can we determine a Central European region in the pre-modern era?
  • What historiographical significance does this area bear for us scholars today?
  • How can the methodology of connected history be used in the study of Central European history?

The Central European Interdisciplinary Summer School will take place online, with the University of Pécs as our host. The event will present a wide range of academic lectures from distinguished scholars as well as provide participants with the opportunity to consider historiographical issues and methodological approaches in the form of workshops and seminars. In doing so, the summer school will enhance our understanding of the political, diplomatic, economic, religious, and social history of the Central European region. We hope to establish a research community from which future conferences and publications could arise.

Motivation letters of 200-250 words along with a short biography up to 100 words should be sent to the summer school organisers at ceissorg@gmail.com by 30 June 2022. For the online summer school there will be no tuition.
