April 1 - 5, 2019 - LIVES WINTER SCHOOL, VENICE (I)


The fifth edition of the LIVES Winter School (April 1 - 5, 2019) is the first organized in collaboration with Venice International University (on its campus of Isola di San Servolo) and led by the two VIU member universities: the University of Lausanne and the University of Padua. In particular, the Winter School 2019 will focus on training the participants in the production of journal articles as a fundamental aspect of the academic career they are approaching: with a “learning by doing” approach, they will prepare collaborative articles going through all stages of the research process, heading towards a joint publication as a medium-term follow-up. Register now, last places available! Final deadline: December 14, 2018

During an intensive one-week program, doctoral students and young researchers will work on various fields of Life Course research through a multidisciplinary approach (Sociology, Psychology, Social Psychology, Life-span Psychology, Social Demography and Social Policies) on vulnerability across the life course. The School first targets PhD students, but Post-doc researchers are also eligible.
